TNN | Updated: Aug 11, 2015, 05:44 ISTANAKAPALLI (Visakhapatnam): Under fire from opposition parties on his silence over the special status issue, chief minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu on Monday said he has sought an appointment with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss the special category status and other promises given to Andhra Pradesh during the bifurcation of the state.
In the wake of Congress worker Muni Kama Koti’s death after he immolated himself in Tirupati over the special status issue, the CM, at a public gathering at Sankaram village in Anakapalli mandal of the district on for the launch of the ‘Mee Bhoomi – Mee Intiki’ programme, requested youth to be patient and said his government would not leave any stone unturned to convince the Centre for special status.Apart from seeking an appointment with the PM, the CM said he has also written to various Union ministers seeking time for them and requesting their cooperation in resolving the issues.
“Apart from special status, there are a number of other issues like the special package to north Andhra and Rayalaseema, Polavaram project, new railway zone for the state and revenue deficit that need to be addressed,” he said.
He also launched the Mee Bhoomi web portal that will maintain all the details of land in the state.
He said that all the 2.24 crore land survey numbers and details of over 72 lakh pattadar passbook holders across the state will be digitalized.
Naidu said that though the TDP government had launched the ‘Nee Bhoomi Nee Patta’ programme in 2003, the Congress government had failed to implement the scheme properly, leading to irregularities in land transactions.
He said his government has launched the ‘Mee Bhoomi-Mee Intiki’ programme for the benefit of genuine landowners and to put an end to benami transactions.
A fresh survey of land across the state will be conducted after which the entire information will be uploaded on the website.
All the revenue records will be made available to the people and every farmer’s land will be linked to his Aadhaar number after verification, Naidu said.
