Guntur: Farmers in capital region, comprising Thulluru, Tadepalli and Mangalagiri, have stepped up their campaign against TDP government’s move to “snatch their farmlands” under the guise of building gigantic capital city.

The farmers belonging to two villages, Penumaka under Tadeaplli mandal and Undavalli village, sent scores of letters to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, seeking his intervention to protect their farmlands. They demanded that the Modi government enact a legislation to ensure that the government cannot “snatch” farmlands without the consent of farmers.

The farmers, in the letter, sought to explain to the Prime Minister that “Our farmlands on the riverfront produce three crops a year. We are produce not less than Rs 20 crore worth of farm produce a year. The black alluvial soil, which is rich in minerals, enables us to raise three crops a year.” Apart from farmers, the women in these villages too sent a good number of letters to the Prime Minister, appealing to him to protect their farmlands. Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, they said, had been scheming to do real estate business on their lands. They warned the Central and State government that they would launch agitation if Naidu was allowed to gift their lands to Singapore industrialists.
