Sabbavaram (Visakhapatnam): The burning Simhachalam temple land issue in 'Panchagramalu' including Adavivaram, Cheemalapalli, Venkatapuram, Purushottapuram and Vepagunta located around Simhachalam for years, would be redressed amicably if Telugu Desam Party was voted back to power, party president N Chandrababu Naidu promised here on Thursday at a public meeting at Sabbavaram junction as part of his Vastunna-Meekosam Pada Yatra. Accompanied by party MLA Velagapudi Ramakrishnababu, former minister Bandaru Satyanarayana Murty, Peela Sreenu and Vasupalli Ganesh Kumar, Naidu began his Pada Yatra from Sunnapu Batteelu area in Anakapalli mandal where he took night halt on Wednesday. It may be recalled that many people had purchased lands in the Panchagramalu long back from farmers and later a problem arose with the temple authorities who claimed that the land belongs to the temple. Though the villagers had approached ministers concerned, nobody has solved the issue so far. "I know the long pending land issue to some extent and after coming to power, the TD government will solve it immediately," he said amid a loud applause. The Pada Yatra has a heavy following of villagers, party sympathisers, workers and leaders at all junctions. He interacted with the people assembled to see him and said that he would provide interest-free loans to the members of self-help and DWACRA groups and refund the interest that was paid so far if he came to power. "Give a chance to the TDP to serve and to extend a cleanse and corrupt-free governance for five years as you people already had witnessed the vast development during TD regime," he claimed. Earlier, Naidu held review meetings of Visakha East and Bhimili Assembly segments separately involving party workers and leaders and gave necessary instructions to strengthen the party. District Telugu Mahila president A Vani met Naidu and discussed the public meeting arrangements in the morning.
