RAJAHMUNDRY: Upping the ante against chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu on land-pooling for capital construction, YSR Congress (YSRC) president YS Jaganmohan Reddy said the chief minister is looking for an opportunity for a real estate business by acquiring thousands of acres of fertile land from the farmers in Tulluru and Bethapudi villages in Guntur district.
Speaking to newsmen here Friday, he said there is no need to acquire fertile paddy fields that produce three crops a year. Around 3,000 acres of vacant land near Mangalagiri is available which is more than enough for capital construction, he said.
The opposition leader made it clear that the ensuing Assembly session scheduled to begin from Saturday will be a stormy one and said that his party is prepared corner the ruling TDP on a host of issues. He said the YSRC will fight for the people especially the ‘neglected’ farming community.
The YSRC chief was in the city to attend the wedding of party general secretary Jakkampudi Raja. Earlier, party leaders accorded a rousing welcome to Jagan at the airport upon his arrival from Hyderabad.
