VIJAYAWADA: Telugu Desam Party leaders and cadre staged a dharna in front of the Sub-Collector’s office on Bandar Road on Monday demanding action against MP Lagadapati Rajagopal and APCOB Chairman Vasantha Nageswara Rao for alleged grabbing of four acres of land belonging to Ayyadevara Kaleswara Rao Trust at Nandigama. The protestors raised slogans in support of their demand that the government take steps for the family members of Kaleswara Rao to continue to have right over the trust lands.

TDP leaders Gadde Rammohan and MLA Devineni Umamaheswara Rao described it as unfortunate that Mr. Rajagopal and Mr. Nageswara Rao had created another trust and caused the land to get entangled in court litigation. They demanded that the original trust be given all the rights in tune with the desire of the freedom fighter.
