Nellore: TD leader and former minister Somireddy Chandramohan Reddy has demanded removal of former Podalakur tahsildar Swathi from service for various land scams that took place during her tenure in Podalakur mandal.
Speaking to media persons here on Wednesday, he accused the district collector of keeping quiet on the matter. Following this, Telugu Desam Party complained to Lok Ayuktha, which sought explanation from him. The collector then admitted that tahsildar Swathi is at fault, Chandramohan Reddy stated.
He alleged that Swathi is involved in the 10–15 crore worth land scam. He wondered why no criminal case has been filed against her despite booking such cases against other accused in the scam.
The TD leader alleged that government lands, assigned lands and DKT lands are being registered in names of individuals at the instance of ruling party leaders. "The situation in the district is such that people have to check their land records on web portal once in 15 days to confirm that their lands are in their own name," he remarked.
TD national secretary Beeda Ravichandra and local leaders K. Srinivasulu Reddy and Sk. Abdul Aziz were present.
