Congress parliamentarian V Hanumantha Rao has demanded an inquiry into the allegations against members of the late YS Rajasekhara Reddy that they have snatched away valuable lands of poor people across the state in the name of construction of industries and religious institutions.
Following the allegations against evangelist Bro. Anil Kumar, husband of YSR Congress leader Sharmila, that Anil consecrated a place of worship on a land belonging to a poor family at Manikonda in Hyderabad without paying compensation to them, a comprehensive enquiry be set up by the government into these allegations for the truth to come out, he said.
Rao met PCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana at Gandhi Bhavan here on Wednesday and asked him to prevail upon chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy to probe the allegations that the family members of late YS Rajasekhara Reddy were involved in several questionable deals and snatching away of lands from the poor.
Later Rao said, “AICC president Sonia Gandhi and vice- president Rahul Gandhi are against taking lands of the poor even for construction of industries. The state government should take immediate measures to undo the injustice meted out to the families of poor people by YSR’s family.”
