Amaravati protest completed 100 days. What did they achieve ??
The protect of pro-Amaravathi, reportedly supported and sponcered by the former Chief minister N.Chandrababu Naidu has completed 100 days and still its going on. Even though the all over the world is struggling, scaring with deadly Corona virus, the protestors of Amaravathi are still continuing their agitation. Most of the protestors are said to be a posh and elite families and spending some time in the tent with branded mobile phones and branded apparels.
Any how this protest was supported by Chandrababu Naidu and his wife Bhuvaneswari by donating a platinum bangle. Later it took several turns and Naidu, Lokesh and other TDP leaders started Bhikshatana in the villages which come under Amaravathi. But the Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy didn’t respond on the protest and didn’t stop shifting the capital to Visakhapatnam from Amaravathi. Any how
The agitation, funded and led by cash-rich farmers who were trying retain Amarvathi for their personnel benefits like making money through real estate ventures. The protest has witnessed strong and at times, violent protests in the initial days. But as the days passed by, the agitation has lost its steam with the issue going to the courts and the three capitals bills being stalled in the legislative council.
The Telugu Desam Party led by N Chandrababu Naidu, which spearheaded the movement in the initial stages, too, quietly withdrew from active participation. During the initial days, the pro-tdp media used to give four pages of coverage for that protest but when Naidu stepped out of that agitation, even the media also started ignoring the agitation. Later the coverage is minimized for half page and even the electronic channels also started ignoring from head lines.
The farmers, including men and women, are still hitting the streets in order to sustain the movement, with a hope that some miracle would happen that would prevent Jagan from shifting the capital to Visakhapatnam.
But on the other side the stategovernment has speedup its efforts to shift the capital from Amaravathi to Visakhapatnam. Meanwhile the legislative council also is abolished and the bill is sent to union government. Anyway the efforts made by the rich farmers of Amaravathi area are not going to fetch any positive results.
