Goud squats in protest

Submits plea on behalf of Polepalli evacuees

HYDERABAD: Former Telugu Desam leader T. Devender Goud squatted on the road opposite Parisrama Bhavan here on Monday afternoon while leading a dharna by land evacuees of the special economic zone (SEZ) at Polepalli in Mahbubnagar district.

On behalf of a group of women demonstrators from Polepalli gathered there, Mr. Goud submitted a memorandum to senior officials of the AP Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC) inside the bhavan. The women demanded land-for-land in addition to Rs. 10 lakh an acre as compensation.

Mr. Goud demanded that the State government scrap its SEZ policy as it amounted to hoodwinking the poor villagers who surrendered their land. The APIIC and the HUDA have turned into ‘broking arms’ of the government, he said. The HUDA extended its jurisdiction up to Mahabubnagar, Nalgonda and Medak, thanks to the policy, he added.He warned of an intensified agitation to be led by him, in Telangana districts against the SEZs.
