Telangana government’s land acquisition is coming under much scrutiny in Mahabubnagar, Medak etc. In Mahabubnagar while the farmers were unhappy with the compensation, in Medak the farmers are quite reluctant to part with their land. .
In one such attacks on acquiring land from farmers, TDP Telangana Unit President Revanth Reddy was direct in his approach as he addressed K Charasekhar Rao and said he would offer Rs 25 crore to CM Chadrasekhara Rao for his farm at his farm house in Medak. KCR owns nearly 70 acres of land in his own district, where he adopted newer technologies in farming, growing vegetables, exotic fruits and flowers. He was so proud of his farm that once he had released a few pictures of his being busy on his land to the media.
Referring to the obvious interest in farming, Revanth said, “will KCR sell his land at Rs 25 crore and give the land to people? The CM must have known the value of agriculture land. Why is the government forcefully acquiring fertile land from farmers for Mallanna Sagar project in his own district? The farming community will lose their livelihood if their lands are occupied.”
The TDP leader also shared his intention to stage a dharna near Mallanna Sagar in support of the farmers soon.
