Controversy• Snatched Property from a Farmer
In 2021, a farmer of Diguvamagam village in Tavanampalli, Andhra Pradesh, Gopi Krishna, lodged a complaint against Jayadev Galla and his family members including Padmavathi Ghattamaneni, Galla Aruna Kumari, and Galla Ramchandra Naidu for snatching his property. According to Gopi, Jayadev Galla and his family members grabbed his farmland in Diguvamagam village, Tavanampalle mandal and used it, illegally, constructing buildings for the Rajanna trust, which is owned by Jayadev Galla and his family. After trying to solve the case through various forums, Gopi later moved the case to local court. The local court ordered the police to book cases against Jayadev Galla and his family members; however, Jayadev Galla and the management of the Rajanna trust did not respond over the issue.
