VISAKHAPATNAM :

The district administration has announced that it would acquire over 160 acres of land along the Rachapalli-Ragupeta hill fringe stretch in Makkavaripalem mandal to set up an Agricultural Polytechnic and Gurukul School.

 Almost all the land is D-Patta but farmers do not have ownership rights. However, a 70-acre stretch around Gandipeta in Bheemaboyinapalen village was originally privately owned and later donated to poor landless farmers of the village.
The local revenue divisional officer (RDO) Narsipatnam and his staff, including the mandal revenue officer (MRO) of Makkavaripalem, conducted public meets in various villages in the Rachapalli-Ragupeta stretch two days ago and informed the farmers that their lands would be acquired by the state for setting up a Gurukul.
Following the news, farmers protested the acquisition proposal. The RDO said the farmers would be compensated as per the new norms.
