Lack of clarity on land pooling angers farmers
There is no clarity on the extent of land actually required for the capital

GUNTUR: Farmers in the proposed capital region are growing restive with the cabinet sub-committee on land pooling failing to come out with a concrete assurance on compensation package.

Farmers allege that the panel members are simply repeating "we will take your grievances to the notice of the chief minister" at gram sabhas. Thus far, the members have not elaborated on the components of the compensation package, they point out.

Nearly 30 villages fall within the capital city bracket fixed by the chief minister. However, neither the chief minister nor the district administration has elaborated on the total extent of land to be pooled. Although, the cabinet sub-committee members unofficially reveal that they would pool land from all 30 villages, there is no clarity on the extent of land actually required for the capital.

On Friday, farmers grilled Tadikonda legislator T Sravan Kumar at Mandadam gram sabha when he evaded replies to their queries on land pooling. They demanded that the government come out with a blueprint of the capital before seeking land from them. The situation turned volatile when a few local TDP sympathisers tried to silence the angry farmers. "Why are you encouraging your party activists against us? Don't we have right to speak at this forum? Don't try to brand us as opposition party workers," the angry farmers told the legislator.

Farmers asked the legislator and Rajahmundry MP M Muralimohan, who was also present at the meeting, to explain in clear terms the location and quantum of land of their share in the developed land.
