Dharmana defends land allotment to TRS

By Our Special Correspondent

VIJAYAWADA, NOV.18. The Minister for Revenue, Dharmana Prasada Rao, has offered to regularise the land on which the NTR Trust Bhavan - Telugu Desam's party headquarters -- in Banjara Hills is located on the lines of allocating a piece of land to the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS).

Mr. Rao said here on Thursday that it was ridiculous on the part of the TDP to criticise the decision of the Government in allotting one acre of land to the TRS in Banjara Hills.

Stating that a political party was also a social service organisation "in a way," he defended the decision of the Government to allot land to the party for the construction of its office there.

"We allotted land to the Communist parties. We are ready to regularise the land of NTR Trust Bhavan in the name of the TDP and also we might take some land, if the Congress party needs," he said.

The Minister observed that the Government was allocating huge tracts of land, running to tens or hundreds of acres of prime land, to several private firms and industrial houses at a throwaway price for the setting up of their respective units. When that was the case with the business houses or software firms, why shouldn't the Government allot a piece of land to a political party, he sought to know.
