Former minister and TDP politburo member, Nakka Ananda Babu, on Friday felt that Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, has begun narrating cock and bull stories like Bhu Hakku (land rights) and Bhu Raksha (land safety) only to provide legal rights to the YSRCP leaders on the 14 lakh acres of assigned and other lands that they have grabbed in various parts of the State.
Ananda Babu told media persons here that Jagan’s ugly design is to provide all legal rights on the lands looted by the YSRCP leaders, including party MP, Vijayasai Reddy, across the State. Observing the the ruling party leaders illegally occupied the lands of the poor Dalits and other sections of society in the past four years, he added.
Ananda Babu asked Jagan whether he has given at least four cents of land in these four-and-half years to any Dalit under the Land Purchase Scheme. How the person, who has not allotted even a single cent of land to any Dalit or a Girijan in these four-and-half years, can get the power or the qualification to provide rights on these lands, the former minister asked.
Jagan managed to get his photos on the passbooks and on survey stones by conducting land surevys for merely namesake only for two times, Ananda Babu remarked. Now, in the name of third phase land survey, he has raied the curtains
to grand the assigned, 22A and other lands besides to the lands owned by Girijans, the TDP politburo member felt.
In the name of land distribution to the poor at Eluru, Jagan has spewed venom at former chief minister and TDP supremo, Nara Chandrababu Naidu, Ananda Babu said. On the one side Jagan is saying that he is providing rights to the poor on their lands but on the other he has grabbed 14 lakh acres till now from the poor in the name of thermal power plants, SEZs and other reasons, he stated.
Those who are in the camp of Jagan have forcibly grabbed the lands of the Dalits and others while Vijayasai Reddy has illegaly taken over 40,000 acres in Visakhapatnam, Ananda Babu said. Why Jagan now providing rights to Dalits on the lands distributed to them by the successive governemnt since 1954, the former minister asked.
Taking advantage of the needs and their poor financial condition of Dalits, the YSRCP leaders have already taken possession of their lands and now Jagan is providing rights only to such persons but not to actual beneficiaries, Ananda Babu maintained.
The people are now regretting for having elected Jagan to power, Ananda Babu said, adding that he came to power by killing his own paternal uncle. The TDP politburo member is of the opinion that atrocities on Dalits are on the rise after Jagan came to power and the people of the State are well aware of his background and how he came to power.
The people are eagerly waiting for the Assembly elections to send Jagan home, Ananda Babu said and demanded Jagan to prove whether Chandrababu has made any objectionable comments on the Dalits.
