He also asked the Chief Secretary to investigate about the complaints filed on the encroachments of the land that is said to be grabbed by Etala Rajendar in Medak district's Achampet. KCR is expected to receive a complete report on the issue very soon. When asked Etala Rajendar about meeting the Chief Minister, he said that there is no need to meet the Chief Minister. There are speculations that few farmers met KCR about the 100 acres of assigned land that is grabbed by Etala Rajendar. The local cops are asked to investigate the matter completely. Digital surveys are conducted by the Vigilance Department. Etala Rajendar called it a pre-planned conspiracy to defame him. Etala Rajendar has been demanding a detailed investigation through a sitting judge but things changed quickly.
