More Kaleshwaram displaced approach Telangana High Court | Published: 16th May 2019 | Posted Date: Thursday 16th May 2019 05:56 PM

Hyderabad: Buoyed by the Telangana High Court’s serious approach towards the government not extending the rehabilitation and resettlement package to the families displaced by the land acquisition for the Mallannasagar reservoir in the Kaleshwaram irrigation project, more victims have approached the court seeking a direction to the state government to provide facilities and compensation as promised to them at the time of acquiring the lands.

Six residents, who lost their lands for the project from Mamidyala village of Mulug Mandal in Siddipet district, filed a writ petition seeking a direction to the land acquisition authorities to pay them compensation and relief and rehabilitation package.

This petition was heard by Justice Shameem Akhter, who, after hearing  it, directed the Registry to place this writ petition before the division bench headed by the Acting Chief Justice, with which more related cases are pending.

The Telangana state government was to inform the Court on Wednesday as to how many project-affected families were extended the relief package and what the state government was providing under package by keeping aside the Central Act.

However, Mr J. Ramchander Rao, Additional AG of the state, sought permission from the division bench to move a lunch motion to file an appeal petition in the cases related to it.

The government informed the court that almost about 175 petitions have been filed regarding this issue and requested it to club them all and hear together.
The counsel for the petitioners, Mr Ch. Ravi, informed the bench that the authorities had violated the orders of this court by displacing the farmers without compensation. The bench said that it would hear his plea on Thursday.

On May 1, 2019, the division bench headed by the Acting Chief Justice Raghavender Singh Chauhan had directed the revenue officials not to displace the petitioners from their lands till they were extended the relief package.
