Farmers who have parted with their land for the building of Amaravathi city have expressed their pleasure over the performing of Bhumi Puja by Chandrababu. Despite doubts they had lent 33,000 acres of land to the government, on the word of Babu, a farmers' leader said. It took some time to convince the farmers but ultimately they all agreed, he said. He hoped that the new city would be much more sophisticated than its Singapore model.
