The present paper is about two contemporary Andhra Pradesh regarding the social issues known particularly as social movements in which erstwhile Andhra Pradesh as well as present Andhra Pradesh involved. As we know that Samaikyandhra was a mass movement and its major collective effort being self-assured by the people of whole erstwhile Andhra Pradesh for a common cause, for the first time, because of two main but common doubts among its people, i.e., water and employment, as the combined Andhra Pradesh was a common base for several issues, especially the people who migrated from different parts of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh and as most of them being settled in Hyderabad for many years and on many reasons, hence did not want to go back or migrate again to their native districts. It was never in news, in view of protests or agitation, in which all category. es of people came out to public for fighting against the partition even though it was not successful because of several political adjustments and manifestoes being made by different parties. However, the collective effort of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh people, did not succeed in stopping the bifurcation process as it had several historical reminiscences but it was a best example and stand as a best path of action in order to fight collectively for any common cause of public interest irrespective of varied social differences among themselves hence stand significant. Whereas, the second movement was based on two-fold, i.e., continuity of Amaravati as capital and withdrawing the idea of establishing three capitals. This agitation crossed more than 300 days by demanding the chief minister to withdraw the idea of shifting the capital to Vishakhapatnam, however, there is no positive response and hence this movement would continue until a positive decision that the present Chief Minister would throw.
