National Green Tribunal (NGT) issued notices to Telangana IT Minister K Taraka Ramarao about his alleged illegal farm house construction in Janwada village in Ranga Reddy district. MP Revanth Reddy filed a petition in NGT about the farmhouse, which violates GO 111.
As per the GO, hotels and residential structures should not be constructed anywhere in the 84 listed villages in six mandals, which constitute the catchment area of the two lakes. Notices were also issued to Telangana govt, PCB, and HMDA. Earlier, Revanth Reddy was arrested and was sent to prison in an ‘illegal drone flying case,’ which might be the first of its kind in the country. He got bail only after Twelve days.
