Illegal sand mining: AP HC serves notice to Vemuru MLA Nagarjuna, ex-MLA Devineni
Based on the petition filed by the Dalit farmers, the AP High Court served notices to YSRCP Vemuru MLA Nagarjuna and former Repalle MLA Devineni Mallikarjuna Rao over illegal sand mining at Oleru village in Bhattirprolu mandal in Guntur district. 170 acres is under the control of the Adi Andhra Tenants Co-operative Society Limited at Oleru village.
Every year, society members are paying tax to the state government for utilising the land. There are allegations that the Vemuru MLA and ex-MLA are using the society's 12 acres for illegal sand mining. But, the MLA alleged that he was being falsly implicated in the case as he was a Dalit.
