KCR Responsible For Encroachments By TRS Leaders: Congress
The Congress alleged that TRS leaders were encroaching upon valuable lands taking advantage of the corrupt revenue system of the state.
Hyderabad | 26th July 2020
Alleging that the land encroachments by the ruling TRS leaders were on the rise in the state, the Congress' Kisan Cell today said that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao should take responsibility for the encroachments.
The Vice President of the All-India Kisan Cell and veteran Congress leader M Kodanda Reddy alleged that the ruling party leaders were encroaching upon valuable lands taking advantage of the corrupt revenue system of the state and the corrupt officials of the revenue department.
He said that the CM had created hopes among the farmers of the state by promising to introduce a new revenue act to end corruption in the revenue department. But that had been an utter failure, and the problem of many farmers had in fact compounded after the CM launched the pattadar passbook distribution program in May 2018, Reddy claimed. The flagship land purification program of the state government had not been completed even after two and half years of its launch, with as many as 10 to 12 lakh farmers of the state not receiving their pattadar passbooks so far. In many cases, new pattadar passbooks had not been issued even for the owners of one or two guntas of land, and several farmers of the state were now committing suicides by burning themselves for their pattadar passbooks, Reddy said, adding that one farmer had even resorted to killing a Tahsildar after losing hope of getting his passbook.
Referring to the orders of the CM to issue pattadar passbooks on priority to farmers of his Gajwel constituency, Reddy asked KCR if he was the CM of Gajwel or of the entire state.
