Mallanna Sagar is in the interests of the state and the Opposition is unnecessarily creating hurdles in the project, the Opposition is anti-development, he remarked.
The government was offering better compensation through GO 123 or the Land Acquisition Act 2013 and the farmers can choose whatever compensation they wanted, the minister added.
