Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh Government has taken another anti-farmer decision. The officials of the Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) have closed all the canals passing through the new capital area in Amaravati without any prior information to the farmers, who own lands in and around the upcoming capital.

The CRDA officials brought JCBs and filled the canals with sand . Angered farmers Immediately staged dharna. The farming community said the court already gave directions to the Guntur Collector not to close the canals. The government's attempt to obstruct water flow in the canals attracted the contempt of the court.
