AP High Court makes key comments on auction of govt lands
After hearing arguments over the auction of government lands for the generation of revenue by the ruling government, the AP High Court on Wednesday said that the government is different from the state as the governments are not permanent but the states are. On behalf of the AP government, special GP filed a counter-affidavit and justified the auction of government lands. The High Court said that the government should mobilise funds for the implementation of social welfare schemes by generating revenue and pooling funds from other sources. The matter was adjourned for Thursday.
