High Court strikes down 123 GO on land acquisition

Wed, Aug 03, 2016, 06:06 PM
In a series of shocks to the Telangana government, the Hyderabad High Court on Wednesday delivered the most painful one by striking down the 123 GO, under which the government was acquiring lands for the Mallannasagar reservoir project.

The case was filed by the project-affected people in Medak district, who argued that injustice was being meted out to them under the GO 123.

agreeing with the ousted people's contention, the court said the lands should be acquired only under the Land Acquistion Act of 2013.

The State government tried to bypass the Act and went ahead with the land acquisition. The goverrnment claimed to have acquired lands in 11 of the 12 villages by whatever means.

The High Court ruling was largely welcomed by various leaders. They included Jagga Reddy, Prof Kodandaram, Revanth Reddy, Uttam Kumar Reddy, DK Aruna and so on.
