Attempt to illegally grab Church land

 

 

Pastor Chandra Mohan, owns a plot that he had purchased for Residential / Church use. As he has now commenced construction, the local government officials are preventing him from doing so stating that the land has been ear-marked for a Public Park. They have intimidated the worshippers, threatening to create a law and order situation.

The Local village officials, in collusion with the Land Mafia, have made a duplicate layout plan, and are trying to acquire title to this private land through adverse possession. In fact, on 05 th June, construction work was started at the site. By nightfall, the local land mafia and private militias destroyed the work that was started.

It is indeed strange that in the Ramanthapur area, nearly 96 acres of land and layouts have been approved for residential living. Not a single foot of land has been ear-marked for a public park. The evil design of grabbing the properties of lawful owners in a clandestine manner, is a very disturbing and dangerous trend. Church, please pray that no Government Department, Public Undertaking, and much less the Police Department should be permitted to interfere with the peaceful construction of the Church.
