HYDERABAD: Reacting sharply to the charges that he had grabbed the endowments land in Devarayamjal, former minister Eatala Rajender said he purchased over six acres in the village in 1995 when there was no claim by the endowments department. The issue of temple land came in 1999 when N Chandrababu Naidu was chief minister and later when YS Rajasekhara Reddy was the CM in 2005.
“After I brought out the issue of endowments land as to how farmers were facing problems with regard to endowments land and not able to sell it, YSR had constituted a committee, which clearly said that it was neither a government land nor an endowments land. The matter was kept in abeyance after the demise of YSR. I had even asked former CMs K Rosaiah and N Kiran Kumar Reddy to resolve the issue,” Eatala said.
