Kodandaram Demands CBI Enquiry On Miyapur Land Scam
Hyderabad: The Telangana JAC chairman Kodandaram demanded a CBI enquiry on the land scams taking place under the jurisdiction of Hyderabad-Rangareddy districts. Speaking at a roundtable conference on Miyapur land scam at Somajiguda Press Club on Saturday, he said the Miyapur lands were occupied using different strategies. He said facts will only come out when a CBI enquiry is done on the scam. If the government doesn’t come forward for a CBI enquiry, he said that they would be a trial by a people’s tribunal.
He expressed doubts that the government is on the side of land grabbers. He suggested that the government has to protect government lands to give a fillip to realty sector in Hyderabad. Taking a dig at the government, he said the government which hesitates to give lands to journalists, doesn’t mind giving away thousands of acres to the rich.
He demanded that the report given by the committee formed in 2014 to conduct a land survey in the State be made public. Legal experts, those who have an understanding of land acts and many leaders of civil organisations participated in the meet. Many speakers criticised the government for supporting the grabbers.
