“We will not spare anybody how mighty they are if proved that they were involved in the crime. Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu had introduced land pooling system and announced special package for those farmers who agreed to give their land to the government,” he warned.
He alleged that YSRCP president YS Jaganmohan Reddy and his MLAs might have hatched a conspiracy to defame the TDP as the party would get credit if the world class capital city was constructed. He reminded that the YSRCP leaders had factionist background whereas the TDP leaders have clean image.
In fact, the aim of TDP is uplift of farmers, as it has been proved by the Chief Minster who waived the loans of the farmers. The government would render justice to those farmers who had given their lands to the government.
He allayed the fears of farmers and gave an assurance to the farmers stating that they would launch a probe into the incident and nab the culprits and punish them.
