Telangana State Government resumes 189 acres of land allotted to APNGOs
July 4, 2014 - Hyderabad
The Telangana State Government on Thursday resumed 189 acres of land allotted to the AP NGOs union at Gopannapally in Serilingampalli mandal on the Hyderabad outskirts stating that it is not being used for a decade.
It may be recalled here that the then Congress government headed by M Chenna Reddy had allotted 426 acres of land to APNGOs Union, Telangana Non-Gazetted Officers Union, High Court, Secretariat and Ranga Reddy district employees. The land of 189 acres allotted to the APNGOs union had not made plots and given to its members. It is said that they could not make the allotment due to disputes between internal groups. The groups could come to an understanding with the intervention of the then Chief Minister Dr YS Rajasekhar Reddy but it cropped immediately after his demise.
Meanwhile, a person claiming ownership of huge chunk of the land moved to the Supreme Court which is still pending. After formation of Telangana State, Telangana Non-Gazetted Officers Association brought to the notice of the Telangana government that the allotted land was not used by the APNGOs and also wanted to know why land in Telangana be given to APNGOs when the membership of the unions was divided on regional lines.
