Bahadur Nizam VII, the legal heir of the former ruler of Deccan state Nizam VII meets Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao on Wednesday seeking compensation from the state government which acquired the private properties of Mir Osman Ali Khan.
The Nizam’s Family Welfare Association says, ‘the state government claimed to purchase about 15,964 acres from the Nizam in 1955-56, for the sale consideration of Rs 4 lakh, which is not received till date. In 1991, the then Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh had given an assurance to the State Assembly that a special court would be constituted under the Land Grab (Prevention) Act, and all cases of illegal sale and encroachments on the Nizam’s properties would be referred to it. The issue was not taken up later’.
To discuss the issue, Bahadur Nizam along with his family members met CM KCR today and sought to interfere in the matter.
