Visakhapatnam: BJP State president Somu Veerraju has sought an inquiry by the sitting high court judge into the Visakhapatnam land scam.

Talking to reporters here on Tuesday, he also demanded that the Special Investigation Team report on the land scam be made public.

On the job calendar released by the state government, the BJP leader said it had caused a storm and the unemployed all over the state had taken to an agitational course. He wondered what the YSR Congress Party government in the state did to the people who gave it as many as
151 seats.

Veerraju also alleged that the government was trying to sell the Tahsildar offices and the government Circuit guest house in the city.

“If we keep quiet, they may even sell our former MLA Vishnukumar Raju’s house. The farmers are not paid even the minimum support price and are dilly-dallying release of Rs.3,000 crore for paddy,” he remarked.

He also found fault with the government for not even paying transport charges to farmers. Though as many as 70 corporations were created, they were mortgaged to draw money, he alleged.

The BJP leader also condemned the criticism against former Union minister P. Ashok Gajapathi Raju, who, he said, was a gentleman and led a simple life and added that people had a lot of respect for him.

It was a pity that coconut sellers and cycle mechanics were criticising the opposition, he observed and remarked that Jagan did not know how to govern and lacked grip over administration. Good governance did not mean going for loans and giving away gifts, he stated, and took strong exception to setting up a Tippu Sultan statue in Kadapa. “We don’t mind a statue for Abdul Kalam but not Tipu Sultan,” he said.
