VIJAYAWADA (viavia): In the Rajya Sabha, YSR Congress Member V Vijayasai Reddy introduced three private member bills, one of which seeks to extend Article 3 of the Constitution's statute by giving the states the ability to determine and change the capital or to have one or two capitals as required by the respective states.Vijayasai Reddy wrote in an interesting way that the AP High Court's decision on the Amaravati capital issue had weakened the state's decision-making ability, according to him.Judgment in contrast to current practiceHe said that the judiciary overreach has diluted and weakened the states' decision-making power.Vijayasai Reddy said the high court ruling was in stark contrast to the current system in which states have been implicitly empowered to determine, change their capital or establish multiple capitals.

It is not unusual for states to change their capitals or establish multiple capitals.Vijayasai Reddy said that no higher judiciary has interfered with such decisions in the past.Vijayasai Reddy also introduced a bill modifying the Press Council of India Act 1978, which places a limit to the distribution of misleading and deceptive information to the media.He proposed four subclauses to Clause B of the Act to more clearly define fake news and prohibit content that provokes fear or anxiety among people, incites violence, hatred, or enmity against a community, or threatens India's security, sovereignty, unity, integrity, or public order.
