Illegal Acquisition of Land alleged in Khurda


Khurda, Jan 15: Another case pertaining to illegal land acquisition came to fore in Tansipatna of Khurda district with the allegations by the villagers. Despite several accusations in this regard, the district administration overlooked the matter.

According to the villagers of Tansipatna, the crematorium land has been illegally occupied by some powerful people of the village to construct buildings and houses.

The poor villagers approached the Orissa High court seeking justice after the district administration did not act on their complaints. However, everything went into vain as the Tehsildar did not evict the illegal houses ignoring the court order, said Basant Kumar Rath, a resident in Tansipatna.

However, action will be taken in this matter, said Jugal Mohapatra, Additional Tehsildar, Khurda.

The villagers may stage protests in the coming days if such things would not be taken seriously by the administration, said Pushpa Dash, a political activist.
