Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu found himself in a spot on Thursday when actor Pawan Kalyan criticised the manner in which the TDP government is procuring land for the state capital.
Pawan, Jana Sena Party chief, who supported and campaigned in favour of the TDP on the advice of Narendra Modi during the last general elections, visited some of the villages near Vijayawada and Guntur which are being acquired by the government to build the capital.
When some farmers complained that their land was being forcibly taken away, Pawan said he certainly wants an impressive capital to be build but not at the cost of the farmers.
