Naidu to face resistance in Amaravati?

Naidu to face resistance in Amaravati?

Telugu Desam Party president and former Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who is planning to tour Amaravati capital region on November 28, is likely to face a stiff resistance from farmers at least from some sections.

The TDP president is planning to make a big issue out of the proposed plan of YSR C government to relocate the capital and ignoring Amaravati region.

He wants to highlight the recent withdrawal of Singapore Consortium withdrawing from the development of city and uncertainty over the fate of farmers who had given away their lands.

However, Naidu is going to face a revolt from a section of farmers who had given away their lands to the capital under land pooling.

While some of the farmers who gave their lands approached High Court for justice as city development is stalled by the YSRCP Government, others are blaming it on Naidu for their present fate.

Apparently, these farmers, who owe allegiance to YSR Congress party, alleged that Naidu was trying to instigate them against the government. They said it was Naidu, and not Jagan Mohan Reddy, who had cheated them.

“He should step into Amaravati only after tendering an unconditional apology,” they demanded, while speaking to media on Monday.

They pointed out that not a single TDP leader gave their lands for the capital, but had parked their investments in and around Amaravati so that their land value went up. Several TDP ministers and MLAs had bought 9,000 acres of land around the capital region.

These farmers also sought to know why the previous TDP government had not developed their plots within three years, as promised and why it had kept on hold registration 25 lakh square yards amidst their lands.

“We don’t even know where our plots are. We were kept in dark about the development of plots,” they alleged.
