Jana Sena leader and film star Pawan Kalyan today called on Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu at the latter’s camp office in Vijayawada. The meeting assumes importance in the backdrop of the State Government’s move to construct the new capital city of Amaravati by pooling about 33,000 acres of land from the farmers in the Guntur district of the State.
Pawan Kalyan, who could not attend the foundation stone laying ceremony of the capital by the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, on October 22, expressed his concern about the land pooling and farmers’ issues in the past and wants the Government to make them part of the development.
The actor and the Chief Minister are meeting after several months. Pawan Kalyan had played a key role during the general elections last year campaigning for TDP-BJP combine.
