Vijayawada: Another land scam involving Telugu Desam MLA Bonda Uma Maheshwar Rao came to light on Tuesday when scores of students staged a protest at BRTS Road, in the city.
According to the students, the MLA and his henchmen tried to take over land belonging to SRR, CVR Government Degree College. Heavy equipment was also brought-in by people said to be close to the MLA. Scores of students walked into the college land and removed the illegally erected boards and flags. Stating that the illegal occupation of the Rs 300 crore land has the backing of MLA Bonda Uma, some student organisations demanded that the state government must take urgent steps to save the college land from encroachments.
It may be recalled that a police complaint was lodged, recently, against MLA Bonda Uma's wife Sujata for attempting to takeover Rs 40 crore worth land belonging to freedom fighters by providing false documents.
