    Land scams reignite Ganta Srinivasa Rao - Ayyannapatrudu fight

    Siva G| TNN | Updated: Jun 15, 2017, 02.04 PM IST

    VISAKHAPATNAM: The land scams that recently came to light have reignited the fight between two ministers, Ganta Srinivasa Rao and Ayyannapatrudu, with the former writing a letter to chief minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu, saying that the latter's comments had brought a bad name to the party.

    According to sources close to Ganta, the undated letter was handed over to the CM on June 4. However, it was leaked to the media by some unknown persons in Vijayawada.

    Even before this, Ganta and Ayyanna have crossed swords on various occasions ever since the former rejoined the TDP from the Congress before the 2014 general elections. On one occasion, Ayyanna had made several allegations against Ganta before party supremo Naidu in an open meeting on the Beach Road issue prior to the elections.

    In the backdrop of tampering and missing of records of Kommadi and Madhurawada lands attracting the attention of everyone across the state, R&B minister Ayyanna had commented that politicians who had migrated to Vizag were indulging in land scams supported by revenue officials and the police. Though he did not mention anyone's name, it was clear that he was referring to Ganta, who was in the eye of the storm following the land scams.

    Piqued by frequent reports in a section of the media, Ganta wrote the letter to the CM, requesting him to conduct an inquiry into the land scams either by the CID or the CBI. While on the one hand he mentioned in his letter various schemes implemented in Vizag, on the other he reminded Naidu of the comments of Ayyanna that had gone viral in the state. In his comments at a press meet, Ayyanna had said that TDP leaders were involved in land scams in the district.

    All these allegations made by the minister had not only tarnished the image of Vizag, but had also had an adverse impact on the TDP. Earlier during the Visakha Utsav, the minister's allegations over land pooling and Chandranna Sankranthi gifts had put the government in an embarrassing situation, Ganta said in his letter. Because of these kinds of incidents, Opposition leaders like Botsa Satyanarayana, D Purandeswari and some CPI and CPM leaders had been criticising the government and the party on regular intervals, the letter said.

    Ganta said these baseless allegations had been proving dear to the image of the city and the entire state at a time when the CM was trying hard for the development of Andhra Pradesh.

    "Your efforts to develop the state have gone waste with these allegations. I am requesting you to conduct a CBCID, or CBI, or judicial inquiry... to reveal the facts to the public," Ganta urged Naidu.

      Illegal cremation continues in Simhachalam residential areas

      V Kamalakara Rao| TNN | Jun 24, 2017, 12.28 PM IST


      VISAKHAPATNAM: Despite a High Court direction as well as several warnings by the police and Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC), the practice of illegal cremations and burials continue unabated in the residential areas of Simhachalam.

      The residents of Venkatadri Nagar Layout near Simhachalam temple under GVMC ward number 72 told TOI that the practice has been going on since 2011. "More than 100 dead bodies particularly of children, pregnant women and senior citizens are burnt or buried in the vacant plots. Several complaints to the police and the GVMC go unheard," said R Srinivasa Prasad, secretary of P&T Colony Plots and Residents' Welfare Association.

      Following a series of TOI reports on the issue, GVMC commissioner M Hari Narayanan had visited the locality on April 25 and instructed his zonal office staff to take all possible measures to prevent the illegal practice. However, on Friday, Prasad said that there has been no improvement in the situation. "Unknown people still bring dead bodies to the vacant spot for cremations and burial," he added.

      "We brought the issue to the notice of several GVMC commissioners since 2011. Hari Narayanan is the only civic chief who visited the spot and assured us that the issue will be solved. Unfortunately, three bodies were cremated at the same spot even after his visit. One body was brought for cremation on the day after the commissioner's visit," Prasad said. "We got a call from the local zonal officials that there will be a meeting with the residents on June 25. The officials did not mention the timings of the meeting. This is an indication that the officials are taking the matter seriously" Prasad added.

      Another resident P Srinivasa Rao said, "Unless there is strong action from either the GVMC or police, the issue will not be solved. Everybody here wonders what leads to people cremating the bodies in front of houses located in Simhachalam."

        Visakhapatnam civic body chief asks residents to vacate dilapidated houses

        The commissioner urged denizens living in dilapidated houses at Chilakapeta, Thompson Street and Kobbari Thota to vacate their homes after the residents explained their problems to him.TNN | July 02, 2017, 09:49 IST

        VISAKHAPATNAM: Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) commissioner M Hari Narayan visited various colonies in ward numbers 25 and 29 on Friday and inspected some of the dilapidated houses with collapsed staircases and roofs in the areas.

        He urged denizens living in dilapidated houses at Chilakapeta, Thompson Streetand Kobbari Thota to vacate their homes after the residents explained their problems to him.

        “If the residents vacate their homes and migrate to some other place in the city for a few months, GVMC will construct new housing complexes in place of the old ones,” Hari Narayanan said.

        The civic chief also directed chief city planner RJ Vidyullatha to issue notices to all residents to vacate their houses and while urban community development wing director D Srinivasan has been asked to meet the residents and note down their problems.

        He also directed the engineers to submit a report on the temporary renovation works needed in these houses.

        Meanwhile, the civic chief also distributed e-bikes to the sanitation staff on Friday. He said that the bikes will help the staff in delivering their duties more effectively. “The e-bikes were launched by chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu during his recent visit to the city. We have purchased 100 e-bikes at a cost of Rs 24.7 lakh and will soon place 20 bikes on RK Beach Road,” he added.

          Land- grab: BJP MLA spills the beans to SIT sleuths

          TNN | Updated: Jul 30, 2017, 08:33 AM IST

          VISAKHAPATNAM: Officials of the special investigation team (SIT) met Visakhapatnam North MLA P Vishnu Kumar Raju on Saturday and gathered details pertaining to alleged land-grabbing by some people in the district.

          It may be recalled that the BJP MLA complained to the SIT stating that some individuals had encroached upon a few parcels of government land a week ago.

          The MLA furnished details of documents related to 2.08 acres of government land occupied by a private person in Madhavadhara area. The land was allegedly occupied by Sanapala Seetaram in 2007-08. Of the total land, 7.08 acres was in survey numbers 13/1, 13/2 and 13/3. The government issued pattas for 2 acres each in survey nos. 13/1, 13/2 and13/3 to G Gopala Rao, Sanapala Ammanamma and Narsamma in 1975.

          Raju said that the land in survey no. 13/3 was occupied by Seetaram and he filed a case in High Court too in 2013 by claiming that the land belongs to him. But the officials have failed to file counter till date. The private person had already sold out some part of the occupied land.

          "He issued a newspaper statement on March 8, 2015 saying that the land belongs to him. I complained to the SIT that the land belongs to the government and it was occupied. Today, the SIT officials visited my house and took the details. I have given them certain documents and a copy of the writ petition filed by the private person," MLA Raju told TOI.

            Andhra Pradesh government to denotify reserve forest in Seetakonda to make way for IT hub

            Siva G| TNN | Sep 8, 2017, 12:54 IST Revenue department owns most of the hills—20 big hillocks and around 25-30 small ones—in and around Vizag city.

            VISAKHAPATNAM: The city is set to lose precious forest land to make way for IT projects, residential townships and other concrete structures. Forest land, including the reserve forests of Seetakonda close to the Indira Gandhi Zoo, and casuarina plantations near Sagarnagaron the beaches towards Bheemili might soon be lost to the vagaries of development.

            "The government is trying to accommodate various IT projects, educational institutions, office buildings, residential townships and other infrastructure required for the region. As there is no nonforest land available in the vi cinity of the city, the government has been actively considering forest land," a senior revenue official told TOI on condition of anonymity .

            As per the AP Reorganization Act, the AP government can divert some forest land located within urban areas to make way for infrastructure, sources said. The government had issued a GO (RT No 343) through the environment forest science and technology department on Oct 17, 2014. Using this, the government has taken up denotification of forest land in the vici nity of three cities -Tirupati, Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam.

            As part of this, the district administration has been trying to take over 150 acres of Seetakonda and over 60 acres of seaside land at Sagarnagar, which was earlier propo sed for tourism projects. Sources said the district administration has already called for four-five meetings in the last three months in this regard. Another meeting is likely to be held in a couple of weeks to decide on the extent of forest land to be diverted.

            When the proposal was first mooted in 2015, the Visakhapatnam wing of Human Rights Council had approached the National Green Tribunal (NGT). "The tribunal said that it was in the proposal stage and nothing was on paper. If the government of India issues any order, it would take up the issue. My petition is still pending at the NGT," secretary of the council, Mantri Syam Prasad, said.

            But the proposals have gained momentum. In place of the forest land acquired, the government is proposing to give land in Anantapur district to the forest department.
