Yash angry as villagers stop family from building road on his farm
I am ready to donate even 10 acres of my land for the welfare of the people in the village, but I cannot tolerate my parents being harassed
Hassan: 'KGF' star Yash's family landed in soup on Tuesday, after residents of Thimmanahalli-Dudda village raised objection to the former's earth levelling work on a vacant land, as they claimed that the plot belonged to them, the police said.
The police said that the villagers picked up a quarrel with Yash's family members after they reached the village in the morning with bulldozers and started the land levelling work on a plot, of which they had claimed the possession, to construct a road.
The villagers, however, alleged pathway encroachment.
Dudda police sub-inspector Madhu told IANS that Yash's family had hired bulldozers to build a road next to their farm to which the local residents took objection.
"The residents are alleging that Yash's family is encroaching upon their land, while the latter claimed that they were constructing a road on a 'Kharab' land, which connects to the Kalabhairaveshwara temple behind the actor's farm land," he said.
The police officer added that the residents and Yash's family members had lodged a complaint and a counter complaint in this regard.
Yash, who was summoned to the police station, told reporters that he had bought the land so that one day he could take up farming and become a model farmer.
"I am not here to make profits. I will not bother about my image. I am a son of this state, and if I want I will own property anywhere in this State. Who can stop me?" he shot back.
The actor added that he was ready to donate even 10 acres of land for the welfare of the people living in the village, but 'he cannot tolerate his parents being harassed or targeted'.
