Amaravati, Oct 27 (IANS) Andhra Pradesh Revenue Department employees association demanded an apology from senior Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leader Chintakayala Ayyanna Patrudu for abusing them as their discharging of duties involved reclaiming encroached land from GITAM university.
Bopparaju Venkateshwarlu, Andhra Pradesh Revenue Services Association (APRSA) head demanded Patrudu to retract his abusive statements on government employees doing their rightful duty obeying laws.
He condemned the TDP leader's abusive statements and highlighted that it was uncalled for from a former minister and a senior legislator like Patrudu.
Instead of telling the government employees to take action against the people who violated the laws, Venkateshwarlu said Patrudu is abusing the revenue employees who reclaimed the land illegally occupied by GITAM university in Visakhapatnam.
"This is not new for you (Patrudu). Earlier also, you have abused Narsipatnam's woman municipal commissioner. Even she lodged a case against you," reminded Venkateshwarlu.
The revenue employees' representative also said that Patrudu abused police officials.
He warned Patrudu that if he fails to apologise, revenue employees will start an agitation in all districts, starting from his home in Narsipatnam.
In the recent reclamation of a part of encroached land, an RDO level officer spearheaded the demolition of GITAM's compound wall.
In the light of this development, Patrudu convened a press conference and criticized the government, including expletive-laced statements on the employees involved in that operation.
