Corrupt officials help land sharks grab house sites of ex-servicemen

They spent their prime of life guarding the nation against external enemies. They did their duty without fear or favour. In recognition for their service to the nation, the government gave the ex-servicemen house sites and issued pattas in Kothagudem in 1985.As many 118 ex-servicemen were given house sites in survey number 137/11 near Industrial Estate. Many of them constructed houses on the site and began residing there.The locality came to be called as Kothadudem Sainikpuri Colony.

However, plot numbers 111 to 117 were lying vacant for long as the ex-servicemen to whom those plots were allotted, could not take up any construction. Further, plot number 118, which was left vacant for public purpose, was also lying vacant.Taking advantage of this, some land grabbers began construction about five years back though they had no right over the house sites. The colony welfare association immediately informed the revenue authorities including the local MRO about the constructions taken up by unauthorized people.

Though the revenue authorities initially stopped the unauthorized people from carrying out the construction, the land grabbers resumed their illegal acts recently allegedly with the support of an assistant engineer of Chunchupally Gram Panchayat. Two single rooms on plot numbers 111 to 113, four single rooms on plot numbers 114 to 118 were constructed. It is alleged that the land grabbers also encroached road adjacent to plot numbers 113 and 114 and sold out some plots. The land grabbers managed to get house numbers for the illegal constructions using fabricated documents.

The colony welfare association petitioned the Kothagudem Tahsildar requesting him to make fresh allotment of the plots not utilized by the previous beneficiaries or utilize them for public purpose. The Sainik Welfare Officer of Khammam was also present when the request was made on November 13.The colony welfare association appealed to the Telangana ministers K T Rama Rao, Nayini Narsimha Reddy, district collector of Kothagudem and local tahsildar to take stern action against the land grabbers and erring officials who are hand-in-glove with the miscreants.
