The Honourable Prime Minister of India
Sub: SOS- Undeclared emergency and loot of thousands of crores public money- threat to my life.]
I am Raghu Ganji, a journalist from state of Telangana.
I’ve been kidnapped by some assailants from the road near my house yesterday. They dumped me in a jeep without registration number and sped away. They warned me not to talk and threatened me to kill me if I dare telecast the five issues which I was investigating as a journalist. After sometime I came to know that the kidnappers were policemen in civil dress. As the news of my kidnap erupted in social media, they had no choice except presenting me in the Honourable court at Huzurnagar.The H’ble court sent me for 14days judicial custody. I am writing this letter to your kind self from the jail where I am put in.
The following are the five issues I have been covering and the police have restrained me not to telecast them.
1 Illegal encroachment of over thousand acres of Evacuee land at Puppalaguda, Hyderabad
2 Illegal encroachment of over 500 acres of IDPL / Hinduja / Gulfoil land at Kukatpally, Hyderabad
3 Illegal encroachment of nearly 43 acres of land near IKEA, Hitech-city, Hyderabad
4 Loot of public money under the garb of projects
5 Exploitation of innocent COVID patients by corporate hospitals with the active connivance of Telangana State Government.
1 The evacuee land of over thousand acres at Puppalaguda has been illegally occupied and encroached by the leaders of the ruling party in Telangana. It is worth nearly Fifty Thousand crore rupees. The farmers are being harassed on the basis of fake documents. The State government has given permission to builders for their illegal construction activity in the evacuee land. I’ve been warned not to report / telecast these details.
2 I am being warned and restrained from reporting on their moves for illegal encroachments of IDPL / Hinduja / Gulfoil to talking to five hundred acres of land which costs not less than Rs10000crores (Rupees Ten thousand crores)
3 I am also warned against my coverage of illegal encroachment of land which was surrendered under the Urban Land Ceiling act (ULCA) in survey numbers 35, 36, 47 and 53 at poshest Hitech-city opposite to IKEA worth 1700 crores
4 Rs.60,000 crore (Rupees Sixty Thousand Crores) of illegal income through unusual escalation of cost from the projects like Mission Bhageeratha, Kaleswaram and other ventures in Telangana. These amounts are being routed to ruling party political leaders. I’ve been warned not to speak about this loot.
5 During this pandemic of COVID, I’ve been covering relentlessly and bringing out the loot of corporate hospitals in the state of Telangana and the sad neglect of government hospitals to the advantage of corporate hospitals. They warned me to stop these news stories immediately.
Sir, I am urging you to focus on these issues as Prime Minister of India. I also seek your immediate intervention to protect human rights and free press in Telangana. More important. Kindly take all necessary immediate measures to save my life as the scamsters are trying to eliminate me to cover up their nefarious activities.
