Sadavarthi, tip of iceberg: YV Subba Reddy

Hyderabad: Terming the Sadavarthi temple land scam as tip of the iceberg, YSR Congress has demanded a comprehensive inquiry into all the land dealing that took place during past 3.5 years. 

Speaking to reporters here on Tuesday Party MP YV Subba Reddy said the ruling party had tried to give away Sadavarthi endowment lands on a platter to its coterie and with the intervention of our Party MLA and taking legal recourse the land was reauctioned and the value had increased three times swelling the revenue of the state. 

This shows that the state which tied to give the temple land for a meagre over Rs 20 crore and when challenged and the intervention of the court the lands were reacutioned which fetched over Rs 60 crore. 

The yawning gap shows the level of corruption and the magnitude of nepotism shown in giving away the Sadavarthi lands on a platter to the favoured few. The land was again taken by benamis of the ruling party top notch. Though the auction was held as per the court directive, the auction was not conducted in the way it should have been held and the presence of the ministers at the auction shows there were some deviations. 

In the first place, the auction notice was not published in national news as the lands were located in a metropolitan city and the baseline price is very high, he said. 

We will fight all the land scams and demand that a comprehensive inquiry be conducted into the various land deals that took place after TDP came to power in 2014, he said.
