Please DO NOT USE AGRICULTURE LANDS for new Capital City in Andhra Pradesh State

Honorable Chief Minister Sir,

Pulling out thousands of acres of Highly Fertile Lands form the farmers to build State Capital will not only push the farmers in to a dangerous zone, but also damage the Ecosystem.

In addition, this also creates severe scarcity of Food Grains. The entire stretch of VGTM (Vijayawada, Guntur, Telnali and Mangalagiri) is called "ANNAPURNA" where the farmers produce range of Food Grains from highly fertile lands. We should sustain the name "Food Bowl of India".

Now, by pulling out those highly fertile lands for building the state capital will create a serious threat for FARMERS, ENVIRONMENT and creates FOOD SCARCITY.

Hence, please stop pulling out agriculture lands for state capital. Instead, look out for an alternate place.

Sincerely.
