YSRCP All Set For Mahadharna On Thursday In Vizag
Visakhapatnam: The YSR Congress Party is all set for the Mahadharna slated to be held on Thursday in Visakhapatnam in protest against the much-publicised land scam. Speaking to the media here on Wednesday the Party leader and Rajya Sabha Member V. Vijaya Sai Reddy informed that YSR Congress leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy would take part in the protest to be held at the Gandhi Statue opposite GVMC Office.
Terming the setting up of SIT for investigation into the land scam as a useless exercise, Sai Reddy said SITs constituted earlier on the incidents of killing of red sanders smugglers in Seshachalam forest and deaths caused by spurious liquor consumption in Vijayawada did not derive any benefit for the people. He alleged that the land scam took place on the directions of Minister Lokesh. Given the involvement of Ministers, MLAs and top level officials in the scam, an investigation by SIT would get influenced by them and hence a CBI enquiry was a must, he elaborated.
Sai Reddy alleged that Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao’s son-in-law Prasanth forcibly bought lands for one lakh an acre in Padmanabham mandal in the district by threatening the farmers that their lands will be acquired under land pooling scheme by the government. He alleged that TDP MLC MVSS Murthi was encroaching further into 54 acres of land lying beside Gitam University owned by him.
