    CAG exposes multi-crore land scam in Andhra Pradesh

    HYDERABAD: The "benevolence" of the Congress Government in Andhra Pradesh in allocation of land (irregularly) for different purposes has caused enormous monetary loss running into several thousand crores of rupees between 2006 and 2011, the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) has said.

    Alienation/allotment of land by the AP Government during 2006-11 was characterised by grave irregularities, involving allotment in an ad-hoc, arbitrary and discretionary manner to private persons and entities at very low rates, without safeguarding the financial and socio-economic interests of the state, the CAG said in its audit report for 2010-11 which was tabled in the Assembly today.

    Most of these allotments were made during the tenure of the late Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy (who was in power between 2004 and 2009).

    In a large number of cases of land allotment, the State Government ignored the prescribed procedures and disregarded "canons of financial propriety", the CAG noted.

    Audit scrutiny revealed that undue benefit of Rs 1784 crore was given to various entities and persons, due to the difference in the rates at which land was allotted and the market value as recommended by the District Collector concerned or the Empowered Committee (headed by the Chief Commissioner of Land Administration).

    "During 2006-11, the State Government alienated/ allotted 88,492 acres of land to 1,027 beneficiaries. In the 11 sampled districts, 459 allotments were made, involving 50,285.90 acres of land. Of these, 409 cases were scrutinised in audit.

    "Audit found that land allotments for commercial purposes were not made in a fair, consistent and transparent manner so as to serve the public interest," the CAG observed.

    I think Government should announce Thursday as "Scam Day" like new Bollywood release on Friday. It will be easier for people to track scam without any surprise !! :rolleyes:

    And when we say that CON-gr-ASS is the most corrupt party in India, they start shouting people of BJP are not Holy cows. True, but there is difference between stealing few crore rupees and one lakh crore rupees.

    Ever wonder why we hate Cons?

    Also, the argument that both are corrupt is just a stupid justification for voting to CONs rather than giving the other actual reasons for voting to them- which are Identity politics and the corruption they themselves involve in.

    All of YSR's skeletons are being probed only after his son Jagan Reddy rebelled and formed his own party. If YSR had been sending suitcases still to party bosses in Delhi all this corruption would have been kept under wraps. See the magnitude of the scam - approx 88,000 acres! Horrific. In the Wakf scam in Karnataka 20,000 acres out of 50,000 acres across the state have been cannibalised by people known to Wakf Board including 38 Congress Party politicians. Congress is the most corrupt organisation by far

    CAG exposes land scam says TOI. Why does the thread title say something else?

    Now Galaxy will say I am a congi but no I am just trying to show his agenda.

    Please don't distort title to suit your personal agenda.

    Yusuf, is there a rule against changing title ? Sometimes I did that - to make it less provocative actually.

    BTW, it is a Congress scam as YSR was chief Congress funds collector in Andhra. Another matter that he also made huge money on the side.

    It's every politician for himself.

    What will you call Bangarappa of Karnataka. One of the most corrupt ones of karnataka. One who has been member of all parties and also formed his own party. He was with cong, BJP, JD lol.

    This question of corruption limited to one party is just a notion. Everyone today wants to join politics so that they can make a killing. What will you call Jagan now? He formed his own party. Tomorrow he will become some minister. Maybe allied with TDP or he will support the next NDA govt. will he become a saint?

    You know what, it's become boring to read the same old propaganda everyday.

    YSR was a darling of the Congress.

    The Defence was mustered to locate YSR when his helicopter went missing.

    The same was not done for the Arunachal CM when his helicopter went missing.

    Even the Bellary brothers were connected to YSR!!

    Actually, it is getting boring to read about scams since they are surfacing too fast daily and too hot to handle or even assimilate!

    These scams are actually demoralising all of us.

    This country seems to be full of crooks and the leadership totally impotent.

    This article from Telegraph sums up the agony

    Oh yes, YSR and Jagan are partners with the Reddys of Bellary. That is why no one bothered to see if the state boundary got wiped out by mining.

    Point being, politicians will do anything to make a buck an there is no ideology. There is only one ideology and that is to come to power and make money off it.

    And Laloo trying to pose as a paragon of virtues having eating up the fodder for the cattle!

    A Chara chor but then he gave Bihar Rabri in return!

    The corruption of NDA was no where near that of the UPA. With all the paid media in its hand, what has the CONs unearthed about the NDA's corruption while i can point Hundreds of 1000CR+ scams in this CONgi rule.

    You know where Indian was in terms of economic power in the year 2000 and what it is now? The growth in Indian economy has allowed those in power to cash in on it.. Like I said, after 2014 only you will know whn NDA comes to power.
