New Delhi, Oct 8 (ILNS) The Andhra Pradesh High Court has recently closed a Public Interet Litigation, alleging that some land was exchanged for construction of the Ambedkar Convention Centre.

The PIL has been filed by Yella Naga Satish aggrieved by the decision of the state where a piece of land belonging to a temple has been exchanged for the construction of Ambedkar Convention Centre. The grievance expressed in the PIL is that an extent of Ac.0.81 cents out of Ac.1.72 cents in Sy.No.823-6 situated at Amalapuram Rural, Amalapuram Mandal, East Godavari District, belonging to Sri Chennamalleswara Swamy Temple is sought to be exchanged with Acs.6.40 cents situated at Uppalaguptam Mandal, East Godavari District, for the construction of an Ambedkar Convention Centre.
