AP Govt to go pn appeal on evacuee land issue
Hyderabad, Jul 6 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Revenue Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao today said the government would go for an appeal against the notification of the Chief Commissioner Land Administration (CCLA) alloting 240 acre of evacuee land in the city to private parties under a Central Act.
Addressing the press, Mr Rao said under Administration of Evacuee Property Act, 1950, which was a Central Act, the CCLA was vested with powers to allot the evacuee land to Pakistan refugees.
The state government had no powers to stall the notification given by the CCLA. However, it could go for an appeal.
He refuted Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President N Chandrababu Naidu's chage that the Chief Minister's Office was involved in handing over the land in Puppalguda of Ranga Reddy District to eight persons violating the Centre's guidelines and said they were baseless allegations.
He asked Mr Naidu to file a Public Interest Litigation(PIL) before the court and cooperate with the government on the issue and added the government had already consulted lawyers for filing the appeal.
