Political temperature peaks in Nellore District
TIRUPATI: Political temperature has peaked in Nellore district with escalation in the war of words between YSR Congress MLA P. Anil Kumar Yadav and Telugu Desam general secretary Nara Lokesh.
While Lokesh accused Anil Yadav of amassing â‚¹1,000 crore by grabbing lands during his tenure as irrigation minister, the former minister denied the allegations. He challenged Lokesh to provide evidence to substantiate his claims.
Lokesh alleged that Yadav acquired 50 acres of land valued â‚¹10 crore in Donthali in the names of his associates Chiranjeevi and Ajanta. Further, he accused Anil of illegally occupying 58 acres land worth â‚¹100 crore in Naidupet, â‚¹10 crore of land at Inamadugu Centre, 87 acres of land worth â‚¹33 crore in Iskcon City, 12 acres land worth â‚¹48 crore in Sadarapalem, four acres of land worth â‚¹25 crore in Brindavanam, five acres land worth â‚¹4 crore in Damaramadugu and â‚¹105 crore of land worth land in Allipuram.
However, dismissing Lokesh's claims, Anil Kumar Yadav said except 3.9 acres in Iskcon City, he has no properties as mentioned by the opposition leader in his or his associates’ name.
Addressing media at YSRC party office in Nellore on Thursday, Yadav challenged Lokesh to prove the authenticity of the allegations.
