The State government is planning to acquire lands abetting Krishna river and island villages through the Land Pooling Scheme. The government also decided to extend scheme for assigned lands too. To take advantage of the scheme, the TDP leaders by colluding with a Minister are purchasing assigned lands by entering into an agreement with farmers on payment of Rs 25 lakh per acre. The TDP leaders would get 800 square yards for residential purpose and 200 square yards for commercial activities. YSRCP leader Gotham Reddy demanded the government to order for a probe into purchase of assigned lands.
