SANGAREDDY: State governments efforts to procure the required extent of land for the Konda Pochamma Reservoir in Sangareddy district hit a roadblock.
Pamulaparthy villagers, whose lands submerge under the proposed reservoir, made it clear that they would not register their lands until government offer `20 lakh per acre. Likewise, Bhilampur villagers, on Saturday did not allow the surveyors, who came to their village, to undertake land survey. They sought proper compensation for their lands.
District collector P Venkatram Reddy met the farmers of the Pamulaparthy two days ago and offered them `12 lakh per acre and asked to register the lands with the government. Pamulaparthy farmer and MPTC member Rajesh Goud said they had not agreed to the offer.
Farmers told the collector that open market price per acre in their village is between `25 to `40 lakh and asking the price `12 per acre is not correct. Farmers made it clear that at any cost they will not register their lands.
Against this backdrop, Bailampur and Mamidyala villagers are not allowing the revenue officials, who come for the survey of assigned lands, patta lands and others. They are questioning the officials that there should not be separate rules for pattadars.
Finally, Gajwel RDO Vijayender Reddy personally visited Bailampur and interacted with the farmers on Saturday. Farmers questioned the RDO how they can survey without giving money to the assignees. They told that they cannot purchase even one acre of land with `12 lakh. RDO Reddy said compensation to the assigned farmers will be made from Tuesday and asked to cooperate for the survey. He said if any body sold the assigned land, they cant be given compensation without government permission.
RDO said Jagadevpur tahsildar had been appointed as incharge for the Bailampur village and added that survey will be started from Sunday.
