    I would say coastal Andhra comes very close, but not ditto. Aren't Kammas dominant in Coastal Andhra?

    Because in TN no singe caste group can be completely dominant during any regime. Be it AIADMK or DMK .

    Kammas and Reddys are dominant, us Rajus (Kshatriyas) are economically well off, although we are not dominant as such, because we are a very very small community. Kapus are growing well economically, but have historically seen a lot of subservience and humiliation from Kammas (the Kamma-Kapu rivalry is deeper than Kamma-Reddy rivaly, which is almost non-existent today), everyone else are very backward (economically). The Kalingandhras (rural Vizag + Vizianagaram + Srikakulem) are mostly tribal.

    Coastal AP is quite fine socially and economically add all rayalseema barring Anantapur to it.

    Why not just build a planned city in Coastal AP?
    Growing economies do need cities.

    You people should have made Vizag as the Capital in the beginning itself. Instead chose Kurnool and then Hyderabad. If Hyderabad goes then what?

    Where there's water, there's no land, where there's land there's no water. Central Coastal Andhra has plenty of irrigation and water, but it's a rice-bowl, its land is golden, and no policy-maker would want a big city there (there are, however, small cities like Vijayawada, Guntur, Rajamundhry and Kakinada). North Coastal Andhra has Vizag city, it has many prospects for becoming a metro in the coming decades. North of Vizag city, it's barren, there's no water to sustain a city.

    However, Prakasham and Nellore districts have a fine mix of intensive agriculture and industrial land. If the locals of Nellore wish so, they can built a great urban settlement anywhere in the district. Let's hope the Krishnapatnam port near Nellore takes off well.
