One fine morning the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister decides to move the capital from Amaravathi to Vishakapatnam. There is a huge resistance against this move from the people who gave away the land for the capital as part of the land pooling.
The analysts have come up with different reasoning for why this move was initiated by the government. The Telugu Desam Party has come out in the open and is opposing this move. Strangely in the agitations, we hardly see the TDP leaders from all three regions of the state. Chandra Babu is leading the charge and is able to garner support from Janasena and communist parties.
In the debates, there are questions from the moderators if YSRCP is prepared for Amarvathi as the capital when Chandra Babu is back in power. If we go into depths of answering this question, TeluguRajyam view on this is, first of all, Jagan is able to shift the capital, because not much development took place in Amaravati in the last 5 years. Second, will Jagan leave the Amaravati as a suitable place to have the capital back once Chandra Babu comes to power? The answer is an absolute NO.
In all possible ways, Jagan is going to come up with different models on the 55000 acres like an SEZ for agriculture, Legislative capital in few hundred acres, Corporate farming with clauses and agreements that will be binding on the State Government and make it next to impossible to get the lands back from corporates or he might even allocate some of the extents for industrialization and the central government bodies like railways or shipping corporations. Ultimately YS Jagan is going to ensure there is no land left in Amaravati by the end of his term.
So the agitating farmers better not fall into the trap of political parties. Capital is not going to come back to Amaravati. Utmost it is possible only on social media posts. So farmers should focus on getting their fair share of compensation for the lands that they have given away.
