Even as the farmers in Amaravati are protesting against the State Government’s Three Capitals Formula, YSR Congress Leaders and Ministers are strongly backing up. Minister Peddireddy Rama Chandra Reddy further irked them saying that ‘Not Three, We shall make 33 Capitals if we want’.
He went on to say that Amaravati farmers are not agitating against the Government’s decision and it is the work of paid artists and TDP activists. “We will give back all the lands of the farmers. Our leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy already promised to give back the lands before the elections,” he added.
Meanwhile, the farmers in the capital region intensified the stir against the Government’s decision. Today, they have resorted to a Mahadharna in Mandadam village. They also blocked all routes to Velagapudi Secretariat by cooking on the roads.
They are demanding that the local MLAs and MPs of YSR Congress should come out and extend their support to their agitation.
