Minister Palle Raghunadha Reddy’s son got a plot by the side of a government complex close to the speed access road, he said. Even Assembly speaker’s PA also got his plot by the side of the speed access road, he said. He alleged that the plot allotment by lottery was not transparent and it was favourable to the ruling party leaders who have lands in the capital villages.
