Pawan Kalyan attacks Babu on Land Acquisition
HYDERABAD: Film actor and founder President of Jana Sena Party, Pawan Kalyan, seem to be slowly and steadily becoming a thorn in the flesh for AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu in the matter of building the state’s new capital.
The actor-turned politician, who is popularly known as “power star” among his fans, once again fired salvos against Chandrababu Naidu virtually sounding a warning that his government went ahead to impose Land Acquisition Act, even though farmers refuse to give their lands for the construction of the capital of the state.
Referring to media reports that AP Government has informed the High Court that the Land Acquisition Act would be used against farmers refusing to give their lands for the construction of the State’s Capital, Pawan Kalyan tweeted that he was ready to fight against the Government on behalf of the farmers.
This is the second time that Pawan Kalyan had challenged Chandrababu Naidu on the issue of land pooling for the state’s capital. Earlier he visited various villages of Talluru mandal near Guntur district and interacted with the villagers regarding controversy over their refusing to part with their fertile lands under the land pooling.
After his fact finding mission and hearing the version of the villagers, Pawan Kalyan appealed to Chandrababu Naidu to leave those villages where the farmers were reluctant to part with their lands. While hoping that the government procures land only with the consent and will of the farmers, he also cautioned that if the lands were forcibly acquired then he would stand by the farmers to protect their rights and interests.
However, on coming to know about the Government’s explanation in the High Court to enforce the Land Acquisition Act on farmers who refuse to give their lands in the land pooling scheme, Pawan Kalyan tweeted today that he would fight against the government on behalf of the farmers if the lands were procured by imposing the Act.
Pawan Kalyan had extended his whole hearted support and extensively campaigned for the BJP-TDP combine in the 2014 elections on the advice of then Prime Ministerial Candidate Narendra Modi, which undoubtedly helped the TDP to come to power in the newly carved state of AP.
Thus, Pawan Kalyan taking either pot shots or firing salvos against Chandrababu Naidu and the TDP Government at every given opportunity in the name of taking up the cause of farmers, seems to be a clear pointer to his hidden political agenda in the near future. (NSS)
