Mysuru, September 18:- The president of Nalwadi Pratishtana, Nandish G Urs urged the Muzrai department to take over the 100 acres of land given by the kings for food distribution at Chamundi Hills.
Speaking at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club recently, he said that the Maharaja of Mysuru had donated 100-acre land at Arjuna Halli and Galigekere Hundi and asked the authorities to use that income for food distribution at the hills.
Urs alleged that the land is in the hands of other people and Muzrai department says it doesn’t have documents of the land. He said that it was mentioned in the central government’s order letters of 1950 and said that the Muzurai department has not taken the land to its custody. He said that the land mafia wouldn’t have become active if the department had taken proper action. He warned of intense protest if the government fails to take back the land within one month.
