Meet the man who owns Yadgir's mini Vidhana Soudha
- the Yadgir mini 'Vidhana Soudha' is built on a 2-acre plot belonging to Nazmuddin Abdul.
- The Government has not yet transferred the land in its name.
- The state has not even given the promised compensation to the facilitator.
- This has stalled the inauguration of the Soudha, completed six months ago
Yadgir was upgraded to a district in 2009 and approval was given to construct a mini Vidhana Soudha for the smooth conduct of the district administration. The land was acquired, the Soudha built and it is currently ready for occupation. Still, the government is not in a position to inaugurate the building - thanks to its own oversight.
The state government acquired two acres of land from Nizamuddin Abdul and promised him a sum of ₹36,94,197 as compensation. Later, it built the mini Vidhana Soudha at a cost of ₹45 lakh, which has been awaiting inauguration for six months now. But Abdul has stalled the inauguration as the government has failed to give him compensation.
Thus, technically, the mini Vidhana Soudha of Yadgir belongs to Abdul and the government can't do much about it for now.
Sadly, owning this large prestigious building has not done any good to Abdul. He has been running from pillar to post from 2012, with an application to release his compensation money. So far, he has submitted pleas to the general secretary of the Revenue Department, Minister of the Revenue Department and deputy commissioner.
Still, the government has not transferred the land in its name and not paid out any money.
It would seem in Karnataka, no one is in a hurry to do any governing.
