Visakhapatnam: CPI senior leader K Narayana sustained injuries when he hit a concrete fencing of an encroached land in Kommadi village near Madhurawada on Sunday.
He was taken to a private hospital where his condition is said to be stable. Narayana, along with CPI leaders, including Ch Satyanarayana Murthy, visited various places where land was encroached at Kommadi and other adjacent villages. The CPI is fighting against land encroachments in various government and assigned lands.
As a part of the agitation, the CPI leaders visited the Kommadi village four months ago and found a vacant place close to MYTAS land (earlier allotted) about four months ago. When they rushed to the spot, some of the private parties were found leveling the land with bulldozers.
When they noticed the CPI partymen coming, they fled the place leaving behind the bulldozers, 20 water cans and other land leveling tools. A boundary wall with concrete planks was constructed on the entire area.
While expressing his anger over the land encroachments, Narayana along with other leaders kicked the compound wall with his leg with force. When Narayana repeatedly hit the cement planks, his foot was struck between two concrete planks leading to a bleeding injury with severe pain. He was shifted to a nearest private hospital.
Speaking to the media, CPI leader Ch Satyanaryana Murthy alleged that there were land encroachments at several places in the district. He said that the land mafia was not leaving any bit of land and was encroaching on it with impunity. He said that when they visited the same site three months ago,
which was announced by VUDA for land pooling, there was full of greenery with plants. Almost 75 per cent of the plants lifted and levelled the land. Narayana escaped with a minor injury without sustaining major fractures, Satyanarayana Murthy said.
