WAKF LAND SOLD TO HINDUJAS, TDP DEMANDS CBI ENQUIRY

Inside India

The Telugu Desam Party demanded an enquiry through Central Bureau of Investigation into the allotment of Wakf land to Hindujas in 2007 in Visakhapatnam for setting up of a power plant. Addressing a press conference at NTR Trust Bhavan, Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council Dadi Veerabhadra Rao demanded immediate cancellation of the second agreement that the State Government had with the Hindujas in 2007 during the regime of YS Rajasekhara Reddy as Chief Minister. He said that the agreement has caused a loss of Rs 10,000 crore to the State. It may be mentioned that in February 2004, the Andhra Pradesh High Court decreed that the title of the land allotted to HNPCL belonged to the Wakf Board. However, four years later, in March 2008, the government directed the Wakf Board to sell the land to HNPCL, at rates prevailing in 1999. The Wakf Board accordingly sold the land to HNPCL in April 2008 at old rates for a total consideration of Rs 47.55 crore as against the prevailing market value of Rs 224.47 crore. Veerabhadra Rao alleged that the State Government has flouted all norms to favour the Hindujas and demanded CBI enquiry into the matter.
