Farmers Against Airport :-
Trouble for land acquisition for Greenfield airport at Bhogapuram is continuing since talks between the farmers who are going to be displaced and the government officials failed. Villagers threatened to commit suicide if the airport or government officials enter their villages for survey or any otherwork. A meeting with the farmers belonging to those villages which are going to be affected by the airport was held at tahsildhar office of Bhogapuram in Vizianagaram district. The farmers informed the officials that from now on they would stockup petrol and diesel at their homes and would not hesitate to immolate themselves if any official enters their villages to acquire land for the airport. RDO K. Srinivas Murthy however tried to pacify the irate villagers by saying that the government would not acquire the land for airport without the farmers’ consent.
