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.

Gopal Singing 'నీలొల్లి నా లొల్లి సెజ్ లనెల్లగొట్టె లొల్లి !'

నీ లొల్లి నా లొల్లి సెజ్‌ల నెల్లగొట్టే లొల్లి
పొలమాక్రమించి నోన్ని
పొలిమేర దాటెల్లగొట్టు
పల్లె పల్లె లొల్లి బెట్టు || నీ లొల్లి… ||

వాన పాములు నత్త గుల్లలు
అడవి ఎలుక పిల్లలురా
మా గుట్టల మీద కుందేలు
దుంపులు ఏడ పొయెనుర
సింతమాను సిగురు మీద
ఉడుత పిల్ల గూడేది
మద్ది మాను కింద ఊరె
మంచినీటి బుగ్గేది

ఆ పల్లె అంచు జొన్న సేలో
వాలే ఊర పిట్టాలేవి || నీ లొల్లి… || Read the rest of this entry »
