At last, the three capitals bill has been successfully approved in the assembly. But the farmers of Amaravati are in no thoughts of stepping back from protests. Is their 37th day protesting for the Amaravati? From the day, AP Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had announced the proposal of three capitals in the assembly, Amaravati farmers have been opposing this decision and protesting against it.
However, these haven't got consideration from Jagan in any way. This is why, as soon as this bill got passed in the assembly, the farmers moved to the high court and filed petitions. YSRCP's decision got challenged by the farmers in their petitions. Also, a petition on the shelving of CRDA also got filed. The Center, CM YS Jagan, Ministers Botsa and Buggana, and chief secretary got mentioned as the respondents in these petitions.
In their petitions, they told that they have only given their lands for the Amaravati as it becomes capital and the previous government had assured them. If these three capitals got established then their lands might lose their value, which is why they are opposing it. They even alleged that the YSRCP government was doing all this just as a revenge on the opposition and previous government.
