The Government of Andhra Pradesh despite giving promise to Janasena Pawan Kalyan over forcible Land Acquisition , has decided to acquire 300 acres of land in Tulluru Mandal and 2,159 acres in island area under Land Acquirement Act 2013
A notification was issued by the government in this regard. Minister Prathipati Pulla Rao over 99% of farmers have voluntarily given their lands for capital construction . Only 30 farmers with 300 acres of land have to give their lands under Land Pooling System and without acquiring the land the capital construction would be delayed.
Earlier , With the opposition parties up in arms against the land acquisition, and Pawan Kalyan also expressing solidarity with farmers, the government decided not to go ahead with the land acquisition. Later AP government officially announced that it had decided not to invoke Land Acquisition Act to take lands from local farmers.
But , AP government has again invoked Land Acquisition Act without respecting their word given to Pawan Kalyan and the farmers of AP. It would be interesting to see How Pawan Kalyan objects Land Acquisition Act this time .
