Miyapur land scam: KCR says govt did not lose a single inch of land or a rupee

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao finally broke silence on the Miyapur land scam. He held that CBI inquiry is not needed and said that the government did not lose a single rupee on the Jagirs of Miyapur, Balnagar, Ibrahimatnam and Shamshabad, despite people making several attempts to gain access.

KCR said that the lands on which private individuals are allegedly claiming rights are still under government control. A review meeting was held at Pragati Bhavan on land grabbing issue on Tuesday. On the contrary to accusations of opposition parties and the media hype, the meeting concluded that this not a scam and that not even one square yard of government land is alienated. The TRS chief said that 810 acres of land in Miyapur has been registered to private owners with litigation rights. The land has not been transferred as the registration fee would be Rs 415 Crore, but only Rs. 60 lakh was paid. Also several lands were supposed to be registered as Immovable property under Land Transfer Book No.1 but were registered under Moveable property under Book 4. Consequently, KCR concluded that such registrations have no value and held that it was a grave mistake from the sub-registrar’s end.

The government believes that to gain control on old Jagir lands, illegal registrations were done by creating GPAs. Such registrations are invalid and do not have legal binding. KCR said that trail is going on in Supreme court related to Jagirdar lands and also directed officials to send the details directly to the chief justice.

However, he did acknowledge that some of these registrations have been subjected to irregularities and subsequently criminal cases have been registered against those individuals. KCR asserted that the investigation is going on and the culprits will be punished.

“TRS govt is sleeping like Kumbhakarna”


Leader of Opposition in Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir advised the TRS government to wake up from it Kumbhakarna slumber and see how farmers were dying in crisis. Accompanied by Congress cell Kisan Cell president M Kodanda Reddy, Shabbir came down heavily on the government stating that it had plenty of money to purchase vehicles for various departments and luxury buses to CM, but had no funds to provide relief to farmers who were dying in terrible distress.

“While the government gave preference to purchase of new vehicles worth over Rs. 500 Crore for various departments, including Rs. 28 crore to upgrade Chief Minsiter K Chandrashekar Rao’s convoy, it did not provide any relief to the farmers.,” they said.

He reminded how TRS government repeatedly denied the national Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) figure of 1127 suicides cases of farmers. Finally, after continuous denials, the Agriculture Minister Pocharam Srinivas Reddy admitted that 409 suicides took place in Telangana and extended assistance to only 166 farmers, they said. Shabbir Ali compared the TRS Government to “Kumbhakarna” which woke up from its slumber of 15-months only after 1500 farmers committed suicide.

Citing his visit to the family of Limbaiah in Ramareddy village of Nizamabad he said he visited his family as he was a farmer and committed suicide. ” We did not give any importance to the fact that Lingaiah’s sister was a MPTC member of TRS,” he said.

Revanth removes cloak from Telangana politics


Firebrand TDP MLA Revanth Reddy removed the cloak from the Telangana politics exposing the caste contours clearly. He said TRS government was targeting the Reddys, a social group which is generally seen as the rival to TRS in politics. Ever since Congress lost the 2014 election and TRS formed the government, Reddys are worried of their removal from the political power. All attempts have been made to re-consolidate the Reddy as a political force in the new state. In an attempt to bring all the prominent Reddys together, a conference also was held in Ravindra Bharati. But all this was cloaked in different jargons. Now, Revanth Reddy, on Saturday, reacting to the attack on Ch Rammohan Reddy in Mahabubnagar Zilla Parishat meeting by TRS MLA Guvvala Balaraju, said Telangana government was targeting all Reddys, including himself (for having trapped him in cash-for-vote sting operation by T-ACB).

This is for the first that Telangana politics have been made to seem Reddy versus TRS (Velama).Revanth cited three instances in which Reddys were targeted. One, the attack on Wanaparthy MLA G Chinnareddy in March this year; two, TRS minister Jupalli Krishna Rao stalling S Rajinder Reddy, Narayanpet TDP MLA; three, slapping of Rammohan Reddy by Guvvala Balaraju. He even cited the case booked against home minister Nayani Narasimhan Reddy’s son-in-law as the attack on Reddys. What Revanth made was not a sudden announcement. It was the explosion of pent up anger among the Reddys since day one, when TRS formed the government under the leadership of K Chandrasekhar Rao.

Evolution of Reddy versus Velama politics

1.Even though TRS wave swept the Telangana in 2014, all prominent and militant Reddys weathered it successfully.

2. All these Reddys are concentrated mostly in Ranga Reddy, Mahabubnagar, Nalgonda and Hyderabad districts. These district form a separate geography of South Telangana.

3. In these districts Congress and BJP emerged stronger than TRS. Even those Reddys who lost the elections are vocal and militant like Nagam Janardhan Reddy etc.

4. First, Congress MLAs noticed a sort of discrimination against the Reddy region by KCR regime. But instead of calling this as discrimination against Reddys, they carefully, constructed a theory called South ( of Reddys) and North ( of Velamas) divide.

5. MLAs DK Aruna and G Chinna Reddy raised the South voice in Assembly and outside as discrimination against Southern districts.

6. Chinna Reddy beautifully constructed a cultural divide between South and North Telanganas.

7 .According to Chinna Reddy, who is popular as Chinnanna, ruling TRS was trying to force the culture of the northern districts upon people of South Telangana.

8.Names of schemes were being borrowed from North Telangana. He says Bathukamma is being thrust on South Telangana. He objected the naming water tanks restoration scheme as ‘Mission Kakatiya’. According to Chinnareddy Kakatiyas built water tanks only in North Telangana.

9. Bonalu, Chinna Reddy says, is the major festival of South Telangana. Though the TRS government declared both as state festivals, it is unduly skewed in favor of Bathukamma and Bonalu given minor attention.

On Saturday, Revanth Reddy removed this cultural cloak of geographical division by making it look like an assault on Reddy social group by Velama TRS.

KCR fulfills promise in record time


It’s a record of sorts for any village in India to get Rs 10 crore grant within days after it was announced. And also a record for any government to fulfill the financial commitment made in public meeting and that too in a seven working days. We see every day number victims of false promises by governments. Delay in giving compensation to the familes of farmers who committed suicides, compensation of project affected people, etc. We hear the cases of Kargil martyr families still waiting for compensation.

In this backdrop the official model village of Telangana Gangadevi Palli got the promised Rs 10 crore grant . While inaugurating the Grama Jyothi in the celebrity village, chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao promised the village Rs 10 grant for the development (?) of the village which apparently has no problem at all. He also said he would give whatever they demand . Surprisingly, last night, the Telangana state government issued orders giving administrative sanction to the Rs 10 core to Gangadevi Palle, Parkal Assembly constituency, warangal district. The file containing the proposal appears to have travelled with a breakneck speed in the secretariat.

The grant has been released under ” special development fund welfare and developmental activities”. The money has been released to the district collector. The District Collector will take necessary action for executing the sanctioned works and monitor the progress of work on a regular basis. It’s really boon for the village which is by far a fully developed village. The modus operandi of the village is participatory development. BP Acharya, principal secretary, planning, gave the administrative sanction.
