A pastor who leads a church in Ongole, Prakasham in Andhra Pradesh was repairing his church’s shed and replacing it with a slab. The villagers objected to the alteration work since the church is built on a non-patta land. Following the incident, the pastor made an application to allow the said alteration stating that he is merely constructing a house there. Thereafter, the police inspected the site and gave written permission to carry on the construction. However, the villagers continue to obstruct any construction activity on the said land.
