Medak: Medak District Collector S Harish on Tuesday said Eatala Jamuna had made false statements on land encroachments by Jamuna Hatcheries owned by the Eatala family at Atchampet and Hakimpet villages in the district.
Following the Collector’s statement on the issue on Monday, Jamuna also held a press conference accusing the Medak Collector of acting in favour of the government.
Stating that there was no truth in what Jamuna said, Harish said representatives of Jamuna Hatcheries were present when the survey was carried out jointly by Survey and Revenue departments of Medak district. The government, he said had allotted 18 acres, 35 guntas of land, which was ceiling land and prohibited from all transactions, in survey number 130 to 11 poor families of Atchampet.
He said Jamuna, however, claimed that they had legally bought 5 acres 36 guntas from one Rama Rao, but there was no registered land in the said survey number. Similarly, the Collector said that they had purchased another three acres of land in survey number 81, but the entire 16.91 acres of land was ceiling land and prohibited from all transactions. He said the government had allotted the land to seven farmers of Atchampet village
Harish said they had strictly followed existing guidelines and Acts while carrying out the survey. “The survey was carried out in the presence of Jamuna Hatcheries representatives who also signed on the ‘panchanama’ copies,” he said.
