Hyderabad: Telangana Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Bandi Sanjay Kumar has asked the state government to immediately look into the glitches in the 'Dharani' portal so that the people could carry out agriculture land transactions in a hassle-free manner.
An estimated five lakh requests have poured in seeking 'corrections' in the official records.
Sanjay said 20 lakh people haven't received pattadar passbooks while 5 lakh complaints have been filed. "The BJP would not spare the government if the glitches are not fixed," he said.
"It has been two years since 'Dharani' was launched and one is unable to make out if this portal is a boon or bane for the people. There is no mechanism to resolve the complaints. Neither the officials nor the ministers are accessible to redress grievances," said Bandi Sanjay Kumar.
Sanjay said that it was unfortunate that records from 1935 were being taken as the basis for verifying ownership. He said due to the glitches in the portal, rightful owners were unable to secure crop loans. Sanjay said even district collectors were worried.
Participating in the round table conference on problems associated with 'Dharani' at the party office, he said: "Farmers and ex-servicemen have been crying hoarse about the difficulties being encountered by them as the lands they own has been put into the prohibitory list. It is shameful that till date there is no clarity on the extent of assigned and patta lands, etc."
Sanjay alleged that the portal is full of errors. He said wrong photos, names, and entries have been made.
BJP state unit chief accused the government of diverting funds released by the Centre for digitizing the land records. "The district collectors are unable to resolve the issues, but Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao is unmoved. Is the portal meant for illegal transfers of prime land or people's convenience?" he questioned.
He asked whether the portal was started to solve the issues of the people or to grab lands worth thousands of crores. He said the portal's management was given to Benami firm close to the Chief Minister.
