Hi Mehul!

Yes you can Uninstall the unnecessary packages. It will also boost up your system speed and save the memory. 
I have working on an mobile app so I have installed on following packages.

The A.S. menu provides you with the possibility of developing for different platforms.

If all you want to do is develop for a phone or tablet then all you need is the system image for your CPU.
#5 if your computer is an AMD CPU.
#6 If you have an Intel I CPU
#7 for older CPUs
