AP Government sent the indications clear that it would be acquiring 300 acres of lands in the Thullur mandal of Guntur district as per the Land Acquisition Act, 2013. Agriculture Minister P Pulla Rao explained Government took the above call as the lands of few farmers who were reluctant to take part in Land Pooling Scheme have become major hurdles for the construction work of the new capital Amaravati. He claims 98-99 percent of farmers in Thullur mandal have already handed over their lands and advices the rest to join the Land Pooling Scheme before Government invokes Land Acquisition Act.
After Pawan Kalyan's tour in Penumaka, AP Government withdrew the Land Acquisition Notification. Within a couple of months, Plans are afoot to issue a fresh notification again to obtain lands from farmers in a forcible manner. Will Jana Sena chief revolt against TDP Supremo?
AP Government acquired 33.600 acres through Land Pooling Scheme. A Land Acquisition notification will be soon issued to acquire 300 acres in Thullur mandal, 1,200 to 1,300 acres of land in Undavalli, Penumaka, Bethapudi and Nidamarru.
