Vijayawada: Mangalgiri MLA Alla Rama Krishna Reddy has submitted a video to CID officials claiming that it proves how lands of Dalits were snatched by TDP leaders to benefit former chief minister Chandrababu Naidu and his associates in the Amaravati capital region.
The MLA said Chandrababu Naidu and his coterie had forcibly acquired lands owned by Dalits in the Amaravati region. He said Chandrababu Naidu, former Municipal Administration Minister Narayana and former minister Pathipati Pulla Rao with the help of some officials forced the Dalits to sell their lands at throwaway prices.
The MLA said real estate businessmen were tipped off beforehand and TDP leaders forcibly took away the lands to benefit Naidu's benamis and close associates.
He said the previous government had announced the capital region after these lands were acquired by TDP big shots and real estate businessmen. He said some senior IAS officials were also involved in the scam.
He said the alleged mastermind of the land scam is former IAS officer Sambasiva Rao and the key IAS officials involved in the scam include Kona Shasidar, Kantilal Dhande, Cherukuri Sridhar and some other revenue officials.
The MLA said it can be clearly seen in the video how Bhumi Putra real estate Brahmananda Reddy has cheated Dalit farmers by telling them that they won't get any package if government acquires the lands.
He reminded that the lands of Dalits can't be bought and demanded CID officials to conduct an in-depth investigation into the scam.
The MLA urged Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to handover the assigned lands to Dalits in Amaravati region.
