How Amaravati Farmers can use Municipal Polls against YSRCP Govt

It is good news for Amaravati Farmers. Municipal polls will soon be held in Andhra Pradesh once Panchayat Elections are held. Apparently, the State Election Commissioner, Nimmagadda Ramesh, is looking forward to holding them on March 10th in the state. 
 
To hold the Panchayat Polls and Municipal Polls, the SEC had made several rounds to the Courts and also fought the current government tooth and nail to not give up on the already delayed constitutional process. 
 
With this, Amaravati municipality is going to be a hot topic after the ongoing polls. With Amaravati Farmers’ protests crossing over 400 days and the government being least bothered about them and their demands, it is expected to vote against the YSRCP government. 
 
Farmers in the capital region have been staging demonstrations, rallies and have been on the warpath for more than a year till now demanding that the three-capital proposal be withdrawn and Amaravati be retained as the lone capital of Andhra Pradesh.
 
Farmers from this region are clearly annoyed with Chief Minister Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy as he neither visited their protest camps nor interacted with them to know about their problems so far. Further, the use of police brutality and other shoddy tactics by the government to thwart their agitations has annoyed them more.
 
With no other option left, the farmers, who had parted with their lands for the construction of the capital, moved the court seeking justice after Jagan mooted shifting of the executive capital to Vizag and establishing the judiciary capital in Kurnool. The case is still pending in the High Court.
 
 
Political analysts reflect that farmers could use their right to vote and register their protests against the YSRCP government by voting against their party to express their helplessness to the government in the upcoming municipal polls. How this will shape up YSRCP’s fate in the state will be something to look forward to!
