The farmers will board a flight to Hyderabad at Gannavaram and to Singapore from Hyderabad on Monday night.

Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu flagged off Singapore tour of first batch of Amaravati farmers on Monday.

To empower farmers on the development of state capital and the state on the Singapore model, AP CM and TDP supremo has organised study trip for farmers of Amaravati.

Almost 26000 farmers participated in pooling 33000acres of land for the construction of Amaravati. While the farmers are paying for the airfare, the AP government is taking care of the rest, including stay at a four-star hotel and travel within.
