TDP government is making plans to acquire 6,975 acres of land in Krishna and Guntur districts for the proposed 186 km eight-lane Outer Ring Road (ORR). Recently, Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari gave the green signal for the State government's proposal for taking up ORR project at a cost of Rs 7,000 crore. However, Gadkari made it clear that it is the responsibility of the State government to acquire lands for ORR. However, people's organisations are finding fault with the government's plan to acquire such vast fertile lands for ORR.
