Hyderabad: The Chief Minister, Mr K Kiran Kumar Reddy, on Friday clarified that he has announced the review of the land allocation policy, but not review of decision of land allocation taken place earlier.
Intervening into the matter when the TDP members stalling the proceedings of the House for JLC, Mr Kiran Kumar Reddy said that his words on March 8 in the House were misinterpreted by the Opposition. He made it clear that his announcement was for review of the land allocation policy, but not the earlier decisions on land allocation. The review of land allocation policy would take time. The government would take the opinions of experts and Opposition leaders in the matter. After review of land allocation policy, the lands allocated to companies, which were fit in the reviewed policy, would be continued and not to be cancelled, he added. The government has no intention to target any individual in the matter, he added.
“All the governments were adopting similar land allocation policy in the State. It was not proper to the Opposition to indulge in mud-slinging against the government, the Chief Minister said. The government was ready to make a statement on land allocations on Monday or Tuesday. The government was not in a position to make a statement as the minister concerned (Revenue Minister) was not available in the House, he added.
The Leader of the Opposition, Mr Nara Chandrababu Naidu, alleged that Brahmani Infotech has transferred the land got from the government to a private company “Mantri Developers” and made money. He suspected complicity of a big man in the misappropriation of thousands of crores in the deal. He made it clear that his party would mount pressure on the government until the JLP was set up.
The Minister for Labor, Mr Danam Nagender, alleged that the main Opposition was politicizing the land allocation issue and trying to gain political mileage. (NSS)
