Actor and Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan has finally saved PVK Nayudu Market in Guntur from auctioning by YSRCP government in Andhra Pradesh.
It may be recalled that AP CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy has put up several government properties for sale to raise funds to fund his Navaratnalu schemes and other development programmes.
Jagan has listed government properties up for sale through e-auction in which PVK Nayudu Market also figured.
PVK Nayudu Market is the famous landmark and oldest market in Guntur.
People of Guntur has emotional bond with this market. Soon after Jagan government listed this market for sale, people of Guntur felt very sad and raised their voice against the auction.
At this juncture, Pawan Kalyan took up this issue and asked Jana Sena cadre to launch agitation programmes to bring pressure on Jagan government to stop sale of Nayudu market.
The Jana Sena sided with the people and protested for 10 days leading to the Government exempting the market from the list of properties to be auctioned.
Finally, YSRCP government withdrew Nayudu market from the list of properties for auction.
Pawan Kalyan on Saturday, June 13 ,2020 has welcomed the State Government’s decision to
exempt PVK Nayudu Market in Guntur from auction.
Pawan Kalyan said that the protest staged by the Jana Sena on the behalf of the people of the city to save the PVK Nayudu Market from the auction forced the YSRCP government to backtrack on the issue. The development is indeed laudable, he said.
Pawan Kalyan commented that auctioning of the public assets as part of the Mission
denotes lack of proper planning on the part of the State Government and appealed to
the state government to take a decision to stop auctioning of public properties.
To create wealth auctioning of public property is not a good decision, he said adding
that the people would not cherish increasing state’s revenue disposing of the public
There would be no use auctioning off the public assets without inventing ways to
attract investments, Pawan Kalyan remarked.
