Bharat Swabhiman Trust Srikakulam wing president Swami Srinivasananda, YSR Congress leaders G. Narsunaidu and K. Appanna on Wednesday alleged that land worth Rs.10 crore in Purushottam Nagar Colony was grabbed as the municipality ‘failed’ to protect it.

Addressing a media conference, they alleged that a few influential people with the support of political leaders encroached upon 18 plots with false claims. They criticised the officials for not taking any initiative in protecting the property even after the issue was brought to their notice.
