CBI to probe into Rajadhani land scam
Finally the central bureau of investigation is going to probe the alleged land scam occurred in Rajadhani of Andhrapradesh. The AP government has undertaken primary investigation through its investigation agency CID and after getting some strong evidences of role of TDP leaders including former CM N.Chandrababu Naidu and others. But Naidu and others have condemned the allegations made by YSRCP leaders and demanded to conduct CBI inquiry if they can. Finally the YSRCP government has fulfilled the demand made by TDP and ordered for CBI inquiry.
The government while issuing a GO of handing over the case to CBI highlighted the irregularities committed by persons officiating in the erstwhile government of AP while designating the new capital area, which were reported by the cabinet sub-committee.
The report alleged that Chandrababu Naidu’s Heritage Foods purchased 14 acres in Kantheru in Tadikonda of Guntur. It claimed that purchases were made through intermediaries like Lingamaneni Ramesh and Lingameni Rajashekar who obtained general power of attorney from the owners of the land in 2014.
The report also alleged that Lingamaneni group, which had a large land bank, gained immensely owing to the designing of the capital area in such a way that the boundary area of the core capital ended in the villages just adjacent to the villages where they had the lands. These lands also did not fall under the land pooling scheme zone.
The inner ring road was designed in such a manner that it passed only a few metres away from the lands of the LEPL Projects, it said and also mentioned that Naidu was provided a rent-free accommodation in the two-storeyed building at Undavalli on the banks of river Krishna. Any how the CBI inquiry likely to unearthen the facts behind the land scam. Some more leaders like Pattipati Pulla rao , Devineni Uma others also expected that they purchased lands.
