Andhra Pradesh MP from Araku, Kothapalli Geetha alleged that the Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TSIIC) and local authorities took over many acres of land in Ranga Reddy district, belonging to her.

The Times of India reported:

Addressing a press conference in city on Monday, the MP said seven firms, including their firm Visveswara Group, holds 53 acres in survey No. 832 at Raidurg village in Serilingampally village worth Rs 530 crore was purchased from a housing society in 2008. She said they had been enjoying the possession of the land for the past eight years. 

The MP alleged that officials had removed the fence around her land on Sunday morning, without serving her any notice. 

"The land was declared as private land by the Supreme Court and we have valid registration documents, pahanis and a certified sketch of the land by tehsildar of Serilingampally mandal. We have encumbrance certificate, certificates from revenue authorities and also no objection certificate from urban land ceiling to support our claim. We possessed orders of high court, preventing any interference by the police, revenue and TSIIC," TOI quoted the MP as saying.

The former YSRCP leader who defected to the TDP, announced that she would launch an agitation against the TSIIC and even file a plea in the Hyderabad High Court.

Incidentally, the MP was in the news earlier when she alleged that the son of Telangana minister Srinivas Yadav kidnapped her husband over a land related issue.

Ruling out the involvement of animal husbandry minister T Srinivas Yadav in the incident, TNIE quotes Geetha as saying, “I don’t think that Srinivas Yadav has anything to do with this. We had disputes but we settled it long back. I feel that the TSIIC managing director and the Ranga Reddy joint collector are behind the incident.”
