Congress leader Bhatti seeks white paper on land deals post-Dharani

Hyderabad: Congress Legislature Party leader Bhatti Vikramarka on Wednesday raised the issue of land being taken back from beneficiaries after the introduction of the Dharani portal.

“In the bonded labour colony of Jaipur mandal, land given to farmers after they were freed from bonded labour was taken back after Dharani was introduced. It was later given to real estate ventures by the government,” Bhatti said.

The CLP leader, who is on People’s March padayatra, addressed the media at Mamidipalli Crossroads in the Maheswaram constituency on Wednesday.
Criticising municipal administration and IT minister K.T. Rama Rao, Bhatti said, “He should decide if he wants to work as an ambassador for the MNCs.

Flaying minister Thalasani Srinivas Yadav for his remarks that Priyanka Gandhi is a political tourist, Bhatti said, he had no moral stature to talk about Indira Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi. He challenged KTR and Thalasani to go to the Osmania and Kakatiya Universities without police security.

“These ministers would understand the anguish of the unemployed if they visited these universities. If these BRS ministers speak with the displaced people of Ibrahimpatnam, people themselves would give them a fitting response,” he said.

The BRS government did nothing to develop the state and it turned the state with a surplus budget into a state with a debt burden of Rs.5 lakh crore and their only progress was in increasing liquor sales.

Deriding the government for taking poor people’s lands for pharma city, he said the government should set it up in areas where there are surplus lands. If the government had spent at least one-fourth of the Rs. 5 lakh crore worth lands it snatched from the poor, all the poor in the state would have got double bedroom houses by now, he said.

He also assailed the KCR government for re-appointing retired former chief secretary Somesh Kumar as chief advisor to the Chief Minister.
