Veteran producer Ashwini Dutt owns 39 acres of land near Gannavaram, Vijayawada, which was procured by the previous AP government under the land pooling act 2013 for the expansion of the airport. In return, they offered him to give equal valued land in the initially proposed capital Amaravathi. But things in Amaravathi took a slump after the present government proposed a change in the capital. With this, Ashwini Dutt approached AP High court demanding compensation for his land. He is said to have demanded a whopping amount of 210 crores from the AP government and Airport authorities to begun the construction work.
