Dehra Dun, Aug 29 (UNI) The Uttarakhand Government has unraveled the identification of one 'Mrs Khanduri', whose name evoked controversy over alleged irregularities behind land use in Dehra Dun.

Countering the allegations made by Tehri MLA Kishore Upadhyay, who had accused the state government of tampering with the land use map by earmarking the name of a certain 'Mrs Khanduri', State Media Advisory Committee Chairman Dr Devender Bhasin said the woman had been identified as Harpriya Khanduri from Narendra Nagar in Tehri Garhwal.

Mr Upadhayay had accused the state government of irregularities in land use and delay in implementation of the city's Master Plan and demanded that it clarify why the name of ''Mrs Khanduri'' was earmarked on the the website of the Mussorie Dehradun Development Authority (MDDA), which was later blocked.

Mr Bhasin, in a press release, demanded a public apology from the Congress legislator for tarnishing the image of the government and misleading the people of the state.
