Sadavarti Satram land scam has been in the news for quite some time now. It would have been closed with the second auction and the land was to be sold to the highest bidder. But the bidder, who made a Rs 60.3 crore offer in the open bid on Monday, refused to make the payment, fearing legal problems.
Realtor Satyanarayana Reddy, who had to deposit half the bid amount within 48 hours of the auctioning process, decided not to take the land, alleging the accusations of YSRCP (Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party) leaders against him might create legal hurdles.
Satyanarayana is the prime follower of Varadarajula Reddy, who is a former MLA and TDP in charge of Prodduturu constituency.
Meanwhile, Mangalagiri YSRCP MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy, while speaking to the media at the party office on Thursday, demanded a CBI enquiry into the Sadavarti Satram land scam. He remarked that Raja Vasireddy‘s heirs donated the lands for the Veda education of poor Brahmins and that they are the Brahmin lands and not government lands.
Since YSRCP recognised the intention of Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu and his son Lokesh to acquire the lands on the cheap, it filed a case in the High Court, drawing the attention of the public to the whole issue. That’s the reason for TDP’s accusations that YSRCP is threatening the highest bidder Satyanarayana Reddy.
The party also reminded that they had appreciated and welcomed Satyanarayana for winning the lands.
A petitioner filed a case in the High Court stating that the highest bidder refused to take over the lands but the court has postponed the case to October 3 after the government prosecutor informed the bench that the hearing on the Sadavarti lands by the Supreme Court is on Friday.
