Eatala row: Devaryamjal temple EO transferred
The Telangana government on Wednesday transferred Sri Seetha Rama Swamy temple EO Chandramohan at Devaryamjal village in Shamirpet mandal and also surrendered Telangana Endowments Tribunal member Jyothi to the Endowments Department.
The EO was shunted out from the post as he failed to prevent encroachment of 1,000 out of 1,500 acres land belonging to the temple. He was working as EO for the last eight years. A GO was issued bringing the temple under the purview of Medchal-Malkajgiri District Collector. A four-member IAS committee appointed to probe encroachment of temple lands has completed its preliminary investigation. There are allegations that former health minister Eatala Rajender had encroached a few acres of Devaryamjal temple.
