Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy launched 13 new districts at a virtual ceremony in Guntur today. With this, Andhra Pradesh got a fresh map and 26 districts in total now. The state government said that the massive overhaul will improve governance and delivery of services. "The creation of more districts is meant to be a step in the decentralised development of all regions," he said. "With the formation of smaller districts - distance from the district centre to remote and border villages will be reduced... District administration will come closer to the people... Increased accountability as the Government comes closer to people," the government said in a statement. Watch this video for more details.
