Devineni Umamaheswara, a senior leader of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) criticised the ruling Government of Andhra Pradesh over Amaravati capital issue.
Mr. Umamaheswara demanded the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) to explain the agitation of Amaravati farmers.
In 2019 December, the YSRCP Government proposed to have three Capitals of Andhra Pradesh.
Since then, the Amaravati farmers who gave off their lands for the development of Amaravati as the State Capital are protesting.
Even during the pandemic due to the Novel Coronavirus, farmers are conducting silent protest against the Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy led YSRCP Government.
The agitation is being carried out since the 20th of December, 2019 nearly over 300 days.
Mr. Umamahesawara said, It was laudable that the farmers, workers and women were vowing to continue their agitation till Amaravati was declared as the only Capital for Andhra Pradesh.
According to the TDP leader, the ruling Party’s leaders were making unhesitating comments and issuing threats to the executive, judiciary, legislature and the press. The common man has lost the basic sense of security and confidence about his rights given by the Constitution of India under the YSRCP Government.
In another statement, Former Andhra Pradesh Minister and a TDP leader Nakka Anand Babu said, Dalit assembly constituencies were located in the surronding areas of Amaravati Capital. It was obvious that the Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy was not liking to retain the Capital City in the Dalit and weaker sections dominated area.
Anand Babu said, the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister betrayed the people of Amaravati by his false promises of making Amaravati the Capital of Andhra Pradesh.
Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, on the 17th of December 2019 proposed three capitals, Visakhapatnam, Amaravati and Kurnool to be the State capitals.
While Visakhapatnam would be executive capital, Amaravati legislative capital and Kurnool would be Judicial capital.
