BJP-led Capital ryots’ team meets Governor

‘Confidence-building measures need of the hour’

A delegation of farmers from the Capital region, led by BJP leaders, on Wednesday sought Governor Biswa Bhusan Harichandan’s intervention in the issues concerning development of Amaravati.

Rajya Sabha member Y.S. Chowdary, former Minister Kamineni Srinivas, Tobacco Board Chairman Y. Raghunadh Babu, and Kisan Morcha State executive member K. Satyanarayana were present.

In a memorandum to Mr. Harichandan, the farmers highlighted their concerns over Capital development, which allegedly hit a roadblock after the YSRCP came to power.

“The newly elected government has decided to stop all the works that are in progress. More than 30,000 workers, besides contractors, have left the capital area as a result. We have sacrificed our lands for the sake of the new Capital. The decisions of the YSRCP government are causing us deep concern,” the memorandum signed by the BJP leaders said. “The need of the hour is to create investor confidence and build the Capital,” it said.
