HYDERABAD: The BJP has demanded a CBI enquiry into the alleged "illegal sale" of various categories of land worth Rs. 50,000 crores to individuals and organisations on the outskirts of the city. Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, party leaders, Ch. Vidyasagar Rao and A. P. Jitender Reddy, said a comprehensive report on the land sale was in the custody of the Rangareddy Collector.
YSR claim questioned
The lands included those allotted to a sports promotion organisation. They alleged that land given for a golf course was being converted into business-cum leisure resorts.
Referring to Chief Minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy's statement that Congress was for a second States' Reorganisation Commission, they demanded the party to spell out its stand on Telangana.
Where was the need for talks between the TRS president and Dr. Reddy if the Congress was in favour of second SRC. Both parties were deceiving people of Telangana, they charged.
On Dr. Reddy's comment that his Government was transparent, they questioned the need for a CBI probe if everything was all right.
The BJP leaders said that they would meet the Chief Minister after his return from Delhi and submit a memorandum urging the Government to celebrate Hyderabad Liberation Day on September 17.
The party would chalk out an action plan depending on the response from Dr. Reddy.
