Hyderabad: Actor and Jana Sena president Pawan Kalyan on Wednesday assured a delegation of farmers from West Godavari district on Andhra Pradesh of all help in solving their problems. Around 150 small and medium farmers from Mulalanka in Polavaram mandal of the district met Pawan Kalyan alleging that the contractor hired by the government to take up digging of soil at the Polavaram multi-purpose irrigation project was dumping the soil in their fields.

They said even though around 400 acres was earmarked for dumping of the soil, the contractor was not doing so. Some of the farmers also alleged that their lands were forcibly being acquired for the project.
