He reportedly referred to the immolation of Abdullapurmet tehsildar Vijaya Reddy and said that a present and a former MLA, both from the ruling party, were linked to the dispute. This reflects badly on the party's image he said. Taking a serious note of the incident, he told the MLAs to keep of land disputes. He has also taken note of at least more than ten incidents in which people have threatened the tehsildars of dire consequences if they failed to do justice to them in land disputes.
But, with most political leaders involved in land disputes, one wonders how effective KCR's warnings would be. Several politicians in Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy, especially five leaders from the TDP, who have of late joined the TRS, are known for their deep involvement in land deals, own hundreds of acres of land. One MLA is directly involved in land deals. It remains to be seen how effective KCRâ€™s warnings would be.
