Spell out land acquisition norms

Nov 19: Reiterating that majority of the farmers are not willing to part with
their fertile land for the capital formation, YSR Congress has said the TDP
government should spell out its compensation policy and stop its propaganda
that farmers are willing to give up their land voluntarily. 

should be made part of the development process and the State should announce
its norms for land acquisition in clear terms. But the Capital Development
Authority, set up by the Government, has been terrorizing the small and medium
farmers and tenant farmers while agriculture labour are left in the lurch,”
party spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters here on Wednesday.

TDP and
its friendly media has launched a campaign that farmers are willing to part
with their land and opposition parties are trying to instigate the locals but
the YSR Committee which toured the region for two days had seen farmers in
distress and fear of losing their fertile land.

of the Tulluru mandal told the committee members that they are scared and are
in confusion as their future looks bleak with the Government not specifying the
quantum of compensation. Some farmers may be willing to give their land but
majority of them are against and most of them are small and medium farmers.

We will
stand by them and fight for their cause until they get adequate compensation.
We are not against the capital formation but are only voicing the feelings of
the locals who had vented their views during the two day tour of our
Committee,” he said.

The State
should try to understand the sentiments of people with small holdings and
agriculture labour, weavers and other artisans who will be losing their
livelihood and the hi-tech chief minister has been showing scant respect to
agriculture and farmers as in the past.

We demand
the State should spell out its policy on land acquisition categorically and do
justice to all sections failing which YSR Congress will fight their cause till
justice prevails, he said.
