Land allegedly encroached by transport minister Mahender Reddy’s brother

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) recently ordered a status quo on the land allegedly encroached upon by State transport minister Patnam Mahender Reddy’s brother, Narender Reddy, at Rajender Reddy Nagar Colony, Chandanagar. This was following a complaint filed by the residents of the colony who were vexed by Reddy occupying Rs 20 crore worth land that was on a green belt area.

Though the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation had issued instructions that any kind of constructions in parks and open spaces of a colony was illegal and a punishable offence, the complaints registered by the residents were not taken seriously by the civic body.

Thakur Rajkumar Singh, chairperson and managing trustee, Human Rights Consumer Protection Cell, said that he had filed several complaints with various authorities last year, but all went in vain. “No action was taken against Narender Reddy. It might be due to his strong political connections. Now constructions have started in the encroached area.”

Having no other option left, Janam Kosam, of which Singh is the general secretary, approached the National Green Tribunal. Singh appealed to the State Government to make a detailed investigation in to the matter for taking necessary action.
