High Court respite for Akkineni Nagarjuna, status quo on N-Convention
Hyderabad: Justice A. Rajasekhar Reddy of the Hyderabad High Court on Monday granted respite to actor Akkineni Nagarjuna by directing officials of the GHMC, revenue and irrigation departments to maintain status quo with regard to the N-Convention issue till Thursday.
Nagarjuna had challenged the action of the authorities in fixing Full Tank Level near his N-Convention in Madhapur. It may be recalled that the irrigation and revenue departments had surveyed the area around the convention centre to check whether the management had occupied any of the land of the tank.
The petitioner contended that the authorities conducted the survey without issuing him a notice and hence the survey was illegal. K. Ramakrishna Reddy, Advocate-General of Telangana, submitted that the notice should be given at the time of action. However, the case was listed for hearing on Tuesday.
