with one comment

‘Poor given only Rs. 9,000 compensation against the promised 18,000’

HYDERABAD: The Communist Party of India (CPI) State council has threatened to stall the Greenpark SEZ at Polepalli near Jadcherla in Mahabubnagar district, unless the government takes steps to set right ‘injustice’ done to locals in the distribution of assigned lands and payments made to them.

K. Narayana, party secretary, in a statement here said during a visit to the area on Thursday, he found that only Rs. 9,000 of the promised Rs. 18,000 was received by the poor, whose assigned lands were taken away and the balance was pocketed by middlemen. He demanded an enquiry into this issue and steps to rectify the ‘injustice’.

The CPI leader also wanted allotment of 10 per cent land, job assurance and payment of current prices to the poor for 25 acres taken over for the leather park.
