Subhash Ghai has been landing from one troubled spot
to the other. After the apex court ordered him to return
the 20-acre land on which his institute Whistling Woods
International is based to the state government, Ghai
has faced another embarrassment with the Comptroller
and Auditor General (CAG) rapping the Andhra Pradesh
Government over allotment of 20.10 acres of prime land
to the institute in alleged violation of rules.
its latest report on land allotments in the state during
the YS Rajsekhara Reddy government's tenure, the CAG
has pointed out that the allotment of the institute
land was in violation of the AP Ancient and Historical
Monuments and Archaelogolical Sites and Remains Rules
on a writ petition filed by a private person, the
state High Court had in January 2010 suspended the
state governments order granting 20.10 acres
of land to Ghai.
the land allotted to the institute at Ibrahimbagh
village under Golconda mandal in Hyderabad was next
to Premamati mosque, a protected monument.
