New twist in Amaravati assigned lands case
Dalit farmers of Malkapuram village of Thullur mandal in Guntur district have alleged that officials have refused to take their assigned lands under the Land Pooling Scheme (LPS) in the previous TDP rule. They stated that assigned lands sold by Dalits were only included in the LPS.
Farmers mentioned that they met the then local MLA Sravan Kumar and senior IAS officer V Usha Rani. But our lands were not taken under the LPS, they rued. Moreover, they accused officials of converting assigned lands belonging to Malkapuram farmers into government lands by changing records.
