Amaravati farmers have taken a crucial decision. They announced a temporary break to their padayatra. This decision was taken in protest of the behavior of the police.
They say that this matter will be resolved in the court itself. JAC leaders said that the padayatra will be temporarily suspended for four days as the court is currently on vacation.
The Padayatra by Amaravati farmers has reached its 41st day. The Padayatra should resume from Ramachandrapuram Bypass Road in the Konaseema district. It was about to happen for fourteen kilometers from Ramachandrapuram to Vijaya Rayudupalem.
However, the police surrounded the function hall where the farmers were staying. No one from outside is allowed inside to help the farmers.
The police say according to the orders given by the AP High Court, the 600 people participating in the padayatra must show their identity cards and the rest will not be allowed except for the authorized vehicles.
This led to an argument between the police and the farmers. JAC leaders who were angry at the police’s behavior held a meeting. It is said that the padayatra is being stopped temporarily in this order.
It was decided to go to the High Court on the behavior of the police. At present, the High Court has a four-day Diwali vacation, so after the vacation, they will fight the police behavior in the court. They said that they will continue the march till Arasavalli with the guidelines of the court.
Jagan Government is adamant about stopping the Padayatra. After failing to stop the Padayatra with the Court, YCP leaders issued threats by instigating Uttarandhra people and even resorted to physical attacks.
Finally, they used the High Court order favorable to the farmers against the Padayatra to force a break.
