Vijayawada: Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan’s war using tweets is continuing. This time he targeted TD MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao. Transstroy, owned by Mr Sambasiva Rao, who is the Polavaram project contractor, is allegedly forcibly using 207 acres of wetlands as a dumping ground without the consent of the farmers.
Pawan Kalyan took to Twitter to question why the state government wasn’t looking into this issue, though it was reviewing the Polavaram construction works monthly.
He also questioned why the state government was ignoring the plea of farmers to compensate them as their wetlands were becoming dumpyards. Was it because the farmers don’t belong to their community, or was it uncomfortable for the contractor, he asked.
The Jana Sena chief said the farmers at Polavaram had already incurred losses in different ways, and yet the state government was not considering their plight. Filing cases against the farmers with the support of the police was hardly a good move, he said.
In a series of tweets, the actor-turned-politician said the state government to do justice to them at least from now on. Pawan Kalyan had expressed his scepticism over whether or not the government had taken permission for the capital city constructions at Amaravati from the National Green Tribunal. He said that as per the NGT stipulations, construction in land near the river basin was not practical. He said those who want the betterment of society should understand the agony of the farmers of Krishna lanka land.
He said discriminating between farmers holding pattas and those on lanka land was not good. He also said that if constructions are not being planned, those lands should be left for farmers for farming....
