Chandrababu Naidu hails Modi: Repeal of farm laws

TDP chief seeks repeal of 3 Capitals plan of AP
Like in 3 farm laws, farmers opposing AP 3 Capitals
Amaravati turned into Rs 2 L Cr wealth for State
Huge response to Maha Padayatra
Capital farmers waging battle for 700 days
AMARAVATI: TDP National President and former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Friday welcomed the latest decision taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to withdraw the three agriculture laws that were enacted in the Parliament in September last year.
Naidu said that the PM took a correct decision in response to the protests from the farmers’ associations. It was laudable that the Prime Minister has also announced that the Centre would focus on many other issues relating to the welfare of the farmers.
In a statement here, the TDP chief pointed out that the Amaravati farmers have been holding ‘deeksha’ agitations for the past 700 days in Andhra Pradesh. They have sacrificed 34,000 acres for the noble purpose of developing Capital City for the State. There has been an overwhelming response from all the 13 districts in AP to the ‘Maha Padayatra’ of the Amaravati farmers.
Chandrababu Naidu said that the then Opposition Leader gave outright support to Amaravati Capital by saying in the State Assembly itself at that time that Capital should be developed in more than 30,000 acres. All the members gave their full support to Amaravati in the then Assembly. As per the laws, the then AP Government had given agreements to all the Amaravati farmers for giving their lands.
Naidu pointed out that all the political parties in AP had passed a unanimous resolution in the State Assembly in the beginning itself that Amaravati should be the one and only Capital City for the State. In a short period of time, Amaravati has developed into a Rs. 2 lakh crore worth asset for the AP Government.
The TDP chief asserted that if Amaravati was fully developed, then there would be no dearth of funds for the development of all the 13 districts in the State. A well-developed Amaravati would create huge potential for creating job opportunities for the youth in all the 175 assembly constituencies in AP. A correct decision needed to be taken in this respect.
Naidu asserted that just like how the three farm laws were repealed now, the 3 Capitals decision should also be withdrawn in the best interests of the farmers and the rest of AP people. The much-cherished dream of the Amaravati farmers and the whole people of the state should be fulfilled. This was important as Amaravati would play a greater role in creation of wealth and job opportunities for the State.
