Sa. Ra. Mahesh land issue : Govt. withdraws Commissioner’s order for resurvey

September 9, 2021

Fresh probe ordered into Mysuru, Mandya ‘land grab’ cases

Bengaluru: The State Government has withdrawn the order passed by Commissioner of Survey, Settlement and Land Records Munish Moudgil to resurvey certain parcels of land — particularly where SaRa Convention Hall that is owned by JD(S) MLA Sa. Ra. Mahesh stands — in and around Mysuru where there are complaints of vast land encroachments.

Based on a petition filed by an activist demanding a comprehensive survey of Government lands, Moudgil ordered a survey of certain parcels of land  at Kergalli, Yadahalli, Dattagalli, and Lingambudhi villages in Jayapura Hobli, Kasaba Hobli and land at Srirangapatna and Belagola in Mandya districts. A team was constituted and it was asked to submit a report within 10 days. 

As per the new order issued yesterday by the Revenue Department Deputy Secretary M.E. Channabasavaraju, the team constituted by the Commissioner of Survey has no powers to order a comprehensive probe and inquiry into land encroachments but it has only powers to survey the land. 

The Government has now ordered the Deputy Commissioners of Mysuru and Mandya to conduct a probe into the encroachment allegations. At no point, the DCs should divest the investigative powers to anyone and must submit a report to the Government within three weeks. The DCs have the powers to name officers in the probe team, says the Deputy Secretary’s order.

    Whitewashing the corrupt usurp of public land has already begun. Now the corrupt politician will go after every one and everything no holds barred

    BJP is planning to come to power in Kaburgi. This is one of the bargains JDS has made…

    We often see on tv, a Kannada channel called TV5 where the headline reads, ARE WE STUPID?!. Well, those who are in power strongly believe we are STUPID, just because they have the ‘lathi’ in their hand, to justify the proverbial Adige, JISKI LATHI USKI BHAINSE, which means, whoever wields the stick, the buffalo is his. But people are watching keenly how just are their decisions and how they are being given the raw deal, more often than desired. With elections somewhere in the corner, the political parties have to treat us, the public, the main stakeholders, seriously and do take note of our feelings and inferences because we are not STUPID, we are not their illiterate vote banks, who they nurture carefully, but a large section of the voters are well educated and responsible citizens, who are watching them, though mutely, but with a lot of interest, their own interest first.
