Cuddapah, February 7, 2007

The Chief Minister, Dr.YS Rajasekhara Reddy in the presence of AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh on Wednesday distributed 338 acres of land to 108 Yanadi (ST) women in his family's estates at Kondur village in Penagalur in his native Kadapa district. He gave away pattas and title deeds to the women for one acre of cultivable land having drip irrigation facility and two acres of land bearing neem, teak and tamarind plantations each under the 'Bhoo Yagnam' programme.

Out of the 997 aces of land at Kondur surrendered by him, he handed over to 659.39 acres to the Managing Director of AP Forest Development Corporation. He declared at a public meeting that his government would take over assigned lands held by influential persons and restore them to the poor. He further added that 54 acres of land had been assigned to the poor since Independence. In Kadapa district alone, nearly 60.000 acres of land was in possession of influential persons. He said that this too would be distributed soon. The Chief Minister said that the Government so far distributed nearly 5 lakh acres of government and surplus land among 4.30 lakh families in the State.

The AICC general secretary, Digvijay Singh said that Dr. Reddy's land donation to the poor was in tune with the Congress party's commitment to land reforms. The biggest challenge before the Government was to assist the poor by resorting lands they had sold away out of poverty. APCC president K. Keshava Rao said people of the district and the State would be indebted to Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy for his gesture as he understood the needs and plight of the poor.
