Minister Harish Rao flayed the Opposition parties for provoking farmers of various villages in not cooperating in land acquisition, for Mallanna Sagar project. The project was taken up as per the wishes of the farmers, who staged dharnas and protests for the project. The government has not pressurised anyone over giving up their lands, he said. Provoking the farmers and deliberately hurdling the process of taking up the project, for political mileage is the main aim of the Opposition, he criticised.
