BJP senior leader and former Union Minister Ch. Vidyasagar Rao has demanded that the government abolish the controversial GO 166, which was allegedly aimed at benefiting land-grabbers and politicians in the name of regularisation. He alleged that Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy was following the footsteps of late Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy in handing over precious land to others.
Quoting the Hyderabad Tenancy and Agriculture Act of 1950, he said that the non-resident of Telangana region cannot purchase land in the Telangana region.
He alleged that the government had abolished the Hyderabad Tenancy and Agriculture Act only to benefit the non-residents of Telangana region and snatch the land belonging to the Telangana region by violating all norms.
Ridiculing the Chief Minister’s claim over the victory of the Congress party in the cooperative elections, he found fault with the State government for diluting the cause of Telangana statehood movement claiming victory in cooperative elections, which were held without party symbol.
Condemning the statements made by the Chief Minister that the loan waiver scheme was not possible to the farmerse, he demanded the government should implement loan waver to small and marginal farmers.
Stall Parliament for ‘T’
To a query, he said that the BJP would stall the Parliament session demanding that the UPA government fulfil its promise of carving out a separate Telangana state. Demanding that the government announce a separate Telangana by implementing Article 3 of the Constitution, he said that the BJP would extend unconditional support for the passage of the Bill.
BJP State vice-president G. Ramakrishna Reddy, BJP district president M. Arjun Rao, secretary B. Jaganmohan Rao and others were also present.
