Congress MLA A. Sampath Kumar on Thursday threatened that he, along with several Dalit families, will take possession of land in Gajwel presently under the occupation of Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao’s brother-in-law Laxmikantha Rao.
Speaking to media persons in Assembly premises here, Sampath Kumar said that the previous Congress regime had allocated 399 acres of land in Gajwel to 38 Dalit families. However, the same has been taken over by KCR’s brother-in-law. Asking Laxmikantha Rao to surrender the land by August 31, he announced that he, along with beneficiary Dalit families, would forcibly take possession of land on September 1.
Sampath Kumar also condemned TRS leader Karne Prabhakar for criticising Congress MLA DK Aruna for raising the issue. He alleged that several TRS leaders were actively involved in land grabbing activity. (INN)
