Anthill soil from 16,000 villages to be collected for AP capital foundation
Putta matti (mud from anthills) from 16,000 villages and 3,000 wards of Andhra Pradesh will be collected in copper kalasams for laying the foundation of the capital city of Amaravati under the Mana Neeru-Mana Matti programme.
Nearly 20,000 kalasams will be used for the foundation laying programme on October 22.
According to Hindu belief, putta matti is holy soil and hence the government is raising the sentiment for the Amaravati foundation programme.
