Anti-land grab activist calls on Lokayukta

President of ‘Bhoo Kabalike Virodhi Horatha Samithi' (Committee Against Land Grabbing) A T Ramaswamy on Monday met Lokayukta Justice Y Bhaskar Rao at latter's official residence to discuss on his complaint on encroachment of government land. 

Speaking to presspersons after the meeting, Ramaswamy said that Justice Rao had assured action on the complaint filed by a delegation led by Ramaswamy, a former MLA, on May 2, 2015.  

The delegation had submitted separate complaints of land grabbing by Puravankara, Khoday Group and illegalities by Shanthinagar House Building Co-operative Society. 

Shanthinagar House Building Co-operative Society was allotted 66 acres and 22 guntas of land in Begur and Srinivagilu villages. 

The petition stated that while the original Society never created the layout for 15 years, a fake society was created with the same name and its benami members were allotted sites. Despite having many reports about the irregularities in the Society, the government had failed to take any action. Encroachment plaint

Similarly, Puravankara and Khodays also encroached on government lands. “I have brought it to the notice of Lokayukta officials, but nothing has happened," Ramaswamy said adding that Justice Rao has directed his officials to issue notice and obtain further enquiry report on the complaint.

Ramaswamy also said that Justice Rao told him about intending to form an intelligence wing at Lokayukta to identify corrupt officials within the organisation.
