TS grilled on building permit
The Hyderabad HC questioned the Telangana government about how they permitted the construction of a medical college and an Integrated District Office Complex on lands in Edira and Palakonda areas of Mah-abubnagar town, despite the court’s stay order.

The division bench heard a PIL by Watch Voice of the People, represented by K. Ganesh Rao, challenging the action of the authorities in constructing the college and office complex, despite the stay order.

Mr. Shashi Kiran, counsel for the petitioner, submitted that the authorities were taking up construction activities, with a view to increase the land value, as the lands belonging to the Chief Minister and his daughter and Medical Health Minister and local MLA, Srinivas Goud are adjacent to the proposed site.

While wondering aloud how the court will decide the place of construction, the bench asked the petitioner whether there was any law which banned construction at the proposed site. The counsel replied that the court had earlier granted the stay. Mr. J. Ramachandra Rao, additional A-G, sought time to place the details before the court. The bench adjourned the case for two weeks.
