Stern action in Munnar, promises Rajendran

‘Community village' for Chengara agitators proposed 


24 March 2010

Special Correspondent, Thiruvanthapuram:

Revenue Minister K.P. Rajendran has said that stern action will be taken against persons who keep land in Munnar in their possession on the strength of bogus title deeds.

Responding to a motion seeking leave for adjournment of the House to discuss the Munnar encroachments, Mr. Rajendran said all the bogus title deeds would be invalidated and stern action taken against those holding land illegally. Scrutiny of the records at Keezhanthoor in Munnar had shown that of the 42 title deeds in the name of 32 persons, none were legally valid. Twelve persons had not turned up for the hearing and those who had turned up could produce only invalid documents.

At Vattavada, 23 of the 54 title deeds submitted for scrutiny were found to be prima facie bogus, the Minister said.

Mr. Rajendran said the government was going ahead with steps to take over the land already identified at Keezhanthoor, Naimakkad, Vattavada and other parts of Idukki district for distribution among landless Dalits and Adivasis. The government proposed to set up a ‘community village' for the landless Dalits and Adivasis who had taken part in the Chengara land struggle. Special teams of officials had been constituted for preparing the land documents so that the distribution could take place during April-May, the Minister said.
