రాజధాని పై రైతుల ఆందోళన || Farmers Concern Over Amaravati ||

Several farmers from Amaravati, the capital region of Andhra Pradesh, on Friday sought the intervention of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government at the Centre to urge the YSR Congress government in the state not to relocate the capital. The farmers from several villages like Velagapudi, Uddandarayuni Palem, Tullur and Venkatayapalem met BJP state president Kanna Lakshminarayana in Guntur and submitted a memorandum to this effect. The farmers expressed serious concern over the recent statement made by state minister for municipal administration and urban development Botsa Satyanarayana that Amaravati, being a flood-prone area was not a suitable place for a capital city and the government would soon come out with a decision on the location of the capital.
