TDP trying to grab land from poor farmers, says YSRCP
Strongly opposing the proposed TDP policy of allotting land to political parties, Jagan Mohan Reddy-led YSR Congress has said that the State has misplaced priorities and has been land-hungry all the time.

Party senior leader Botsa Satyanarayana accused that TDP is trying to grab land from poor farmers in all the districts in the name of land to political parties proportionate to the strength in the Assembly.

He lamented that the idea itself is too selfish and the government, which failed to build even a single house for the poor. "Even though Chandrababu Naidu has made tall promises during electioneering on the housing front, he has now decided to snatch away land and alienate land from farmers," said Satyanarayana.

The fraudulent manner in which NTR Trust Bhavan has been usurped is a shining example of the land obsession Chandrababu Naidu has and he is pursuing it relentlessly, he added.

Stating that they strongly oppose the policy and reject the idea as it alienates farmers as large extent of land has already been taken away from them in the name of capital formation, he said that more land is being pooled in the name of industrial policy and now taking away poor farmers' land for political parties to build offices is ridiculous as no political party in the country has such a policy.

Why was the decision taken in such a hurry has no answer and whether or not there is need is very crystal clear and the move is out and out anti-poor, he added. He advised that the State instead should pursue with the Centre on the special status which was assured by the Prime Minister and has the cabinet nod.
