While the Amaravati farmers’ protests reached to 14th day, there has been no official statement from the state government’s end which further triggered the farmers. With passing days, the farmers have been fathoming the support of oppositions, welfare associations and student organisations. Adding fuel to the agitations, the recent statement from BJP national spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao that Centre will not, in any circumstances intervene in the State Capital issue, the farmers decided to take a step ahead. As a part of which Navuluru farmers have collectively written a letter to President of India Ramnath Kovind, seeking mercy killing.
In their letter to the President, Amaravati farmers stated that they were betrayed by the government over the state capital and have urged the former to allow to kill themselves. They even stated that the police department who ought to protect the law are booking murder cases against them who have been fighting for their lands. “We are protesting from 14 days and not even one ruling minister bothered to visit us. We opine that death is an ultimate form of protest against the governments as all door or the solution have been closed and the government is pursuing revenge,” read their letter to President which sought his intervention to stall the process of shifting the capital. Will this letter move the Constitutional head and thereby the central government?
