AP Government likely to return the lands Amaravati farmers

Ever since Jagan Mohan Reddy announced that there is a possibility of three capitals for the Andhra Pradesh, there is a severe outrage among the opposition and from some people as well. Especially, the farmers in the Amaravati region went clueless with the latest statement from the CM and they protested against the 'decentralization theory' proposed by the CM.
 
The previous state government had procured around 34,000 acres of fertile land for the construction of Amaravati’s capital city. Earlier, keeping the promise he made during the recent assembly elections, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy has agreed in principle to return lands to farmers who were unwilling to part with it or which the government does not need any longer.
 
Confirming the same, while stating the protesters in Amaravati are TDP people, Peddireddi criticized opposition leader Chandrababu Naidu. "It was Chandrababu who said the assembly is temporary and many other concrete structures are short term. For Assembly and secretariat, 200 acres of land is enough and don't know why the last TDP government gathered 33,000 acres of land. Most of the farmers did not give their land voluntarily for capital but the previous TDP government threatened and forcefully grabbed it from farmers," said Peddireddi.
