Residents of six villages refused to give up their lands for the construction of Machilipatnam Port in Krishna district. Activists of several farmers' associations staged rasta roko on the Hussainipalem road. Traffic came to a standstill between Machilipatnam and Gudivada. The agitators clashed with the police, who had come to drive them away. Meanwhile, MP Konakalla Narayana stated that all farmers will be compensated adequately and even if one farmer is suffering, he would resign from his post.
