RAJAHMUNDRY:The government has completed the survey of 28,000 acres of land out of 33,000 acres acquired through land pooling system in and around Tullur village of Guntur district and would finish the survey of another 5,000 acres in a day, municipal administration minister P Narayana has said.
The minister told reporters at Sri Venkateswara Anam Kala Kendram here Friday that the farmers, who voluntarily gave their lands for setting up the new capital, had discussed their issues with the revenue officials during land survey. The government needs to acquire only 500-600 acres of land and is yet to take a decision on including famous pilgrim centre Amaravathi in the capital region, he said.
The opposition parties were unnecessarily creating panic among the farmers of 29 villages in and around Tullur by making baseless statements due to which the latter were asking the opposition leaders not to visit their areas.
“What is the use of the visit of Medha Patkar when the necessary land was already pooled by the government in a peaceful manner? The people of the 29 villages are not willing to pay heed to the opposition parties, which are trying to get political mileage, for a beautiful capital is coming up shortly and chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu is putting in his best efforts,” he added.
Later, he inspected on going renovation works of Sri Venkateswara Anam kala Kendram with MP M Murali Mohan and mayor PRS Sai.
