The farmers from Nizamabad created quite a sensation when they decided to file nomination in Varanasi to contest against Prime Minister Narendra Modi to highlight their problems.
Some people went ahead and filed the nominations but most of them were rejected by the Returning Officer.
A few farmers from Andhra Pradesh have followed the same formula. Two people from Prakasham district have filed their nominations against the PM. Veligonda Project Sadhana Samithi chief Vadde Srinivasulu on Tuesday has filed his nomination in Varanasi. Brahman Priest wing State General Secretary Kolluri Venkata Ravikiran Sharma has also filed his nomination at 5.30 PM.
They said, ‘State Government and Prakasam District Leaders are neglecting Veligonda Project construction. If this project gets completed, 15 lakh people in Prakasam, Nellore and Kadapa Districts will receive drinking water. Irrigation Water can be provided to 4.50 lakh acres. We want the rulers to resolve the Fluoride Issue. This is why we are contesting against PM Narendra Modi’.
