Jana Sena president Pawan Kalyan - Sakshi Post

Visakhapatnam: Jana Sena President Pawan Kalyan called upon the farmers in Andhra Pradesh to take part in a mass protest similar to the one in Maharashtra. It may be recalled that the farming community in Maharashtra had protested en masse.

Speaking at a programme organised here today to address the problems of all the displaced people in the state, the Jana Sena chief expressed his intention to kick off the protest march from the Capital Region. He also suggested formation of Joint Action Committee (JAC) comprising displaced people from all the projects.

Pawan Kalyan addressed a gathering of poeple displaced from Amaravati, Kakinada SEZ, Polavaram, Sompet, Vamshadhara project, Bhavanapadu Port, Kovvada Nuclear Power Station and Bhogapuram Greenfield airport. During his address, he compared the present day ruler to Hiranyakashyapudu and said that just like the mythological character our present rulers were grabbing lands from farmers.

The Jana Sena chief alleged that although there were no industries,capital city or jobs, the government was forcefully taking away lands and denying farmers their right to carry on agriculture. He alleged that in Vizag, companies like Inno Solutions and Franklin Templeton were given an acre of land at rs 35 lakhs while the market rate was Rs 3.5 crores. The protest will continue until the land acquisition act is amended and all the dispalced people are rehabilitated properly, he said.

Pointing to Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, Pawan said if the CM was unable to look into the problems of North Andhra, his son could accompany him to understand the situation prevailing in that region. He also said that TDP goons will dominate and get votes for their party in 2019 elections. "I am responsible for the victory of minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao and MP Avanti, but they have not done anything for the region till date," he remarked.
