Now, CPM Asks Government For Land For Party Offices
The Telangana unit of the CPM wrote to the government urging it to allot land to the party in all the districts of the State, just like it was done for the TRS.
Hyderabad | 14th May 2022
The Telangana unit of the CPM today wrote a letter to the Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar urging him to allot land to the party in all the districts of the State as per GO Ms No 167 issued by it on August 18, 2018, authorizing the allotment of one acre of government land to all recognised political parties, in all the district headquarters.
This comes in the wake of the government allotting one acre of land to the TRS in Hyderabad earlier this week, in posh and expensive Banjara Hills.
In the letter, State party secretary Tammineni Veerabadram told the CS that the CPM was a national party, and that the officials of the state government did not allot the authorized land to the party in the districts where the party did not have offices so far, even after submission of formal proposals.
He also told the CS that land was not allotted to other opposition political parties either, and alleged that it was being done deliberately.
He told the CS that the party had brought the issue to the notice of the CM and the Principal Secretary of the Revenue department on June 24, 2019, but that no action had been initiated on the representations even 14 months after their submissions.
He said that the party had again submitted applications on August 24, 2020, to the CM and the Principal Secretary and all the district Collectors, too, with the same plea, but that no action had been taken this time either.
Given the allotment of lands to the TRS in all the districts of the state, he alleged that the GO looked like it was brought in only to give out lands worth crores of rupees to the ruling party.
He urged the CS to intervene in the issue and take steps for the allotment of lands to all parties.
