Cancel OMC fresh lease: YSRCP

Press Release


, November 29: The nexus between ruling Congress and main opposition came to the fore again with the State government allotting 25-hectare high quality land to a private person who is close to TDP and the two parties are working for mutual benefit, YSR Congress has said and demanded an inquiry into the fresh allotment.

“TDP which raised a hue and cry over the allotment of land for Obulapuram Mines is now silent when the government has cancelled the land allotted to State Mineral Development Corporation (APMDC) and gave it to SR Minerals owned by Surender Babu who is close to TDP,” Party Deputy floor leader, Sobha Nagi Reddy told reporters here on Thursday.  

YSR had allotted 75 hectares of low quality land to OMC and has given 25 hectares of high quality land to State Mineral Development Corporation. The Kiran Kumar Government has cancelled the lease to APMDC and allotted it to a private person which shows the nexus between the ruling party and TDP, she said.

We demand that the State has to cancel the fresh allotment and explain as to why the high quality land was taken away from APMDC and given to a private party, she said. 

The state government issuing a show cause notice to APMDC on why it could not get some clearances is only a ploy to take away the land and to allot it to a person who is very close to a TDP leader. This shows that the two parties are working for mutual benefit.

N Chandrababu Naidu being very categorical that he will not move a no-confidence motion can be understood by such allocations. The TDP leader ironically has been repeatedly saying that the State Government has failed on all fronts but when it comes to no trust vote he is developing cold feet, she said.

YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has told CBI that it was N Chandrababu Naidu who has given the OMC lease and he played an active part in the campaign for Sushma Swaraj for Bellary Lok Sabha seat. However, CBI has shown no inclination to question Chandababu, she said.
