In the midst of confusion about Andhra Pradesh’s capital city, a lot of statements of AP Ministers and YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) leaders added fuel to the fire. A section of farmers who gave their lands for the capital in and around Amaravati took to streets to stage a protest. The protest created a traffic jam on the road leading to the Secretariat at Velagapudi.
Criticizing statements of Urban Development Minister Botsa Satyanarayana and BJP MP TG Venkatesh, farmers of a village in Guntur district staged the protest and demanded that the state capital to remain in Amaravati. Reacting to Botsa’s statements, the farmers said, “None of the villages falling under the capital region were flooded in the past. Amaravati is not a flood-prone area.”
More than 24,000 farmers have given their acres of land for the development of state capital under the land pooling scheme. The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) government had assured to return a part of the land back to the farmers, as developed property besides giving them the lease amount. YSRCP leaders are now claiming that many farmers have not yet received the promised lease amount by the TDP government. The conundrum over the capital of Andhra Pradesh seems like it is not going to end any time soon.
