Amareshwara temple lands in Chennai sold for a song, alleges YCP

Mon, Jun 20, 2016, 03:53 PM
While taking strong objection to the way in which crores of rupees worth of temple lands were secretly auctioned at a throw-away price, the YSR Congress said that its fact-finding committee was stopped by the TDP cadre at Amaravati which has provided credence to the misappropriation of temple lands belonging to Amareswara located in Chennai.

‘The way the auction has been conducted and the land given away to TDP coterie at about Rs 25 lakhs -- while the original price would be crores of rupees -- shows the intent of the government. Our fact-finding committee will pursue the matter further and will reach Chennai on June 26 and will submit a report to our Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy,’ party leaders Dharmana Prasada Rao and Ambati Rambabu told reporters in Guntur and Hyderabad on Sunday.

Dharmana Prasda Rao, who heads the fact-finding committee along with leaders of Krishna, Guntur and Nellore districts, were stopped by TDP workers at Amaravati when they were inquiring about the temple lands belonging to Amareswara Swamy, which are located in Chennai.

The lands were auctioned secretly and only three bidders were present, as no public notice was given well in advance as per the stipulated norms. Lands worth Rs 6.25 crores were given away on a platter for just Rs 25 lakhs per acre.
