With state government hell bent on acquiring the land from multi-cropped villages for the development of new capital Amaravati on the banks of River Krishna, Jana Sena president and movie star Pawan Kalyan once again, in a last ditch attempt, tweeted to urge the chief minister Chandrababu Naidu against taking over these uniquely fertile lands for the capital construction.
This time Pawan grudgingly approved the bitter truth that if one area is to be developed, invariably the other areas would have to bear the brunt, he said alluding to the loss being incurred to the villages who are opposed to offer their land to the Capital City project of Andhra Pradesh.He, however, urged the CM to ensure that the damage to the “other” is minimal.
Pawan, who visited these villages some time back to express his solidarity, has been urging the state government to spare these multi-cropped villages from the capital project. Pawan, instead of working for these people on the ground , chose a painless path of twitter to voice his concern in support of the farmers of Penumaka, Undavalli and Betapudi. On Wednesday he tweeted his support to the farmers.
“I urge Hon’ble CM of AP Sri CBN garu not to Use ‘Land acquisition act’ on Fertile Multi cropped Lands of Undavalli,Penumaka,Bethapudi..& other River front villages,” he said.
“The price of Development of one area r one group always results in environmental pollution, displacement & disgruntlement of another group. This is the very nature of civilisation. But development with least damage possible completely lies in the wisdom of rulers,” Pawan said.
It may be recalled that Municipal minister P Narayana revealed two days ago that government was planning acquire the final phase acquisition of land to the extent of 220 acres by the end of this month invoking the provisions of Land Acquisition Act.
