High Court issues notice to KCR over land allotment for TRS office

Hyderabad, June 23: The Telangana High Court on Thursday issued notices to Chief Minister and Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhar Rao and some top officials on a PIL challenging land allotment for TRS office in Hyderabad.

Retired employee Maheshwar Raj filed the Public Interest Litigation (PIL), challenging allotment of 4,935 square yard land in upscale Banjara Hills for the ruling party’s Hyderabad district unit office.

The petitioner alleged that the costly land was allotted to TRS for a mere Rs 100 per square yard.

The court took up the petition for hearing and issued notices to the Chief Minister and TRS president Chandrasekhar Rao, party general secretary Srinivas Reddy, chief secretary, chief commissioner of land administration, revenue secretary and Hyderabad district collector. They have been directed to file counters within four weeks.

The state government last month allotted the plot of a little more than an acre to TRS on Road No. 12 of Banjara Hills’ NBT Nagar for construction of the party’s Hyderabad office. This came under sharp criticism from the opposition parties which claim that the land could be valued at Rs 100 crore.

The Congress party had described the land allotment as robbery in broad daylight. Its leaders questioned the allotment when the TRS already has a big office in the same area.

They were referring to Telangana Bhavan, the state headquarters of TRS. Inaugurated in 2006, the swanky office is spread over 40,000 square feet.

All India Congress Committee (AICC) spokesperson Dasoju Sravan termed the allotment a robbery of valuable public land with unholy support of official machinery.

The BJP also criticised the allotment of costly land at a paltry price. Its leaders alleged that the officers were hand-in-glove with the ruling party.
