Supreme Court to hear plea in railway land encroachment case tomorrow



Supreme Court

Another petition has been filed in the Supreme Court in the case of removal of slums built by encroaching on railway land in Haldwani, Uttarakhand. The Supreme Court will hear this petition filed against the demolition drive on Thursday. Earlier, local MLA Sumit Hridayesh has also filed a petition. Now both the petitions will be heard by the Supreme Court together on Thursday.

On Monday, residents of Banbhulpura in Uttarakhand’s Haldwani district had appealed in the Supreme Court against the high court’s recent decision to remove encroachments from 29 acres of railway land in the city. The Congress has also requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami to consider the demolition order in a humane manner as 4,500 people would be rendered homeless if it happens, PTI reported.

Meanwhile, Congress MLA Sumit Hridayesh supported the protest by residents of Banphoolpura area and blamed the Uttarakhand government for their plight. Congress MLA Hridayesh said people have been settled in the area for nearly 100 years. There are 70-year-old mosques and temples here. There are Najul land, wholly owned land and leaseholders here.

On December 20, the Uttarakhand High Court had ordered the removal of encroachments from 29 acres of railway land in Banbhulpura area of Haldwani. The court had ordered the encroachers to give a week’s notice to vacate the place. Since then, there have been demonstrations here.
