WARANGAL: Warangal MLA Baswaraju Saraiah has urged the State Government to cancel registration of land in Jakkaloddi village in Hanamkonda mandal and acquire the same to help the poor.

In a statement issued here on Wednesday, Mr. Saraiah said the village has large extents of Government and private land. Many individuals were purchasing land from poor farmers for commercial purposes and real estate business. “Since the village is located close to the district headquarters, it is best suitable for implementing the schemes such as ‘Indiramma’, ‘Rajiv Gruhakalpa’, the proposed textile park and for constructing residential schools and other offices.”

Mr. Saraiah said he had written letters to the Chief Minister, the Revenue Minister and the Collector urging them to initiate acquisition process without delay. “The Government should not allow the precious land to go into the hands of private individuals. They can be best used for the common good,” he said.
