Meanwhile, Raghuveera Reddy said that the seventh and final phase of land distribution scheme would be completed before January 3. All the ministers and district collectors were asked to complete the distribution of 1.25 lakh acres of land to the landless poor before January 3, as they would become busy for the Assembly session.
