The land parcels also include 13.83 acres taken back from the LULU group in October last year citing discrepancies in the allocation made by the previous government. The government even faced a lot of criticism from various investors and opposition leaders, citing the impact on the new investments in the State and the credibility of the State. Even LULU group India head Anant Ram, stated that they have decided not to invest in Andhra Pradesh in any new projects in future.

On the present land sale E.A.S. Sharma former IAS officer in a letter to Chief Secretary Neelam Sawnhey stated that it is imprudent on the part of the government to sell valuable land and it is against the public interest. He further opined that owing to the shortage of land, the government is failing for fulfilling the demand for public amenities such as parks, community halls and burial grounds. The move would further worsen the situation. He even questioned about the government’s intent in favouring real estate agents. The Ex IAS officer stressed about CRZ restrictions on land acquired from the LULU group and insisted that the sale of such lands will be contempt of court.
