GUNTUR: The CRDA started reviewing suggestions andobjections filed against the proposed agriculture protection zones in the Amaravati perspective plan.
As many as 12,000 objections were received by the CRDA from the people of 40 mandals of the CRDA region in Krishna and Guntur districts. The CRDA formed a committee to sort out all objections and to give recommendations to resolve the objections. Majority of the people have lodged objections against the proposed three agriculture zones and demanded their cancellation.

The CRDA had appointed eight officials to the committee to scrutinse the objections and suggestions according to the mandal and the nature of objections. The CRDA sources said that it did not expect largescale objections against the proposed three agriculture protection zones which reflects severe anguish of the public.

The legislators and politicos are pressuring the CRDA to cancel the agriculture protection zones fearing of losing public support due to decreasing of land value due to the zones.

Telugu Desam leader G. Venkateswarlu said that the farmers and landowners of the 29 villages of Amaravati capital region benefited with the land boom but people of the adjacent mandals were badly affected with the proposed agriculture protection zones. He said that the dreams of Guntur and Krishna district people were shattered with the decision of the government to form agriculture protection zones and if the CRDA continues the three zones, the public will definitely go against the TD in the future elections. Hence, the legislators are demanding cancellation of agriculture protection zones.

CPI state assistant secretary, M. Nageswara Rao lamented that Guntur, Tenali and other proposed agriculture protection zone areas would be restrained from development till 2050 with this norm. So, the CRDA should not include urban and semi-urban areas in the zones to protect land prices.

The CRDA sources said that after the scrutiny, the committee would give suggestions to resolve the objections to CRDA commissioner who will send recommendations to the government for final approval. Hence, it will take another one month to take a decision about the agriculture protection zones.
