Amaravathi, Nov 23: Ever since the YSRCP came to power, the Chief MInister, Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy, has been eyeing on lands and now he has shifted his focus on private lands since the illegal occupancy of government lands is complete, said the TDP national spokesman, Mr Kommareddy Pattabhiram, here on Wednesday.
Talking to media persons here, Mr Kommareddy Pattabhiram said Mr Jagan’s latest land protection (Bhu Rakshana) scheme is only aimed at forcibly occupying private lands in the State. Now people started thinking ‘Idemi Kharma’ (What is this ill-fate) and they should protect their own lands, Mr Pattabhiram added.
The main purpose of the land protection scheme is who should occupy how much land and thus Mr Jagan started uttering ‘Mee Bhumi, Naa Bhumi’ (Your land and our land), the TDP leader commented. What is the history of the Minister, Mr Dharmana Prasada Rao, who shared the dais with Mr Jagan at Narsannapet, he asked and pointed out that the Minister has illegally occupied the ex-servicemen’s lands by changing the land records.
There is no need to mention the illegal occupying of the lands of YSRCP MP, Mr Viayasai Reddy, the TDP spokesman said adding that the Visakha MP, Mr MVV Satyanarayana, too has the history of forcibly occupying lands of others. Mr Pattabhiram said that the new scheme has been launched only to have the details of the owners of the lands across the State and asked what is the need now to issue passbooks for the land owners afresh.
Stating that the former chief minister, Mr Chandrababu Naidu, issued the passbooks when Mr Jagan didn’t have the knowledge about what is a passbook, Mr Kommareddy Pattabhiram wanted the people to visit their lands regularly so that they will not be illegally occupied by the ruling party leaders. Mr Jagan brought in the new laws and issued fresh GOs only to legalise the illegally occupied lands, particularly those lands owned by those who are staying abroad, he remarked.
Mr Komareddy Pattabhiram said that when Mr Chandrababu’s public meetings are drawing massive crowds, only barricades are appearing at the public meetings of Mr Jagan. As Mr Chandrababu works for the welfare of the people, Mr Jagan works for destroying the State, he stated.
The TDP leader asked as to how Mr Jagan can compare himself with the late Mr NT Rama Rao. If Mr Jagan has any respect for the late leader, how can he close the Anna Canteens and how will he change the name of the Health University, he asked. It is Mr Chandrababu who is the legal heir of the Late Mr NT Rama Rao and it is only the TDP that can give good governance to the State, he commented.
