Alleging that the Telangana State government’s G.O. No.123 on land acquisition was a bogus one, Congress SC Cell national president Koppula Raju has alleged that the farmers would not be benefited by the G.O. at all.
The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) organized an awareness program at Gandhi Bhavan here on Thursday on UPA government’s Land Acquisition Act of 2013.
