HYDERABAD: Telangana High Court on Friday directed the state government to place a copy of resolution passed by Agricultural Marketing Committee of Gaddiannaram, Hyderabad, handing over its land to government for building a super speciality hospital there.
The 22-acre land, where a fruit market is located, is to be shifted from Gaddiannaram to Koheda village in Peddamberpet mandal of Ranga Reddy district.
A division bench comprising Acting Chief Justice (ACJ) M.S. Ramachandra Rao and Justice T. Vinod Kumar issued the directive on an appeal by a traders’ society against handing over of the Gaddiannaram land. The appellant maintained that the marketing committee has no powers to alienate properties belonging to agricultural societies.
It had been submitted on July 7 that committee members of Gaddiannaram Agriculture Marketing Society had passed a resolution handing over 22 acres of its property in response to Telangana state cabinet’s proposal to build a government super speciality hospital at the location. The fruit market is to be shifted to a 178-acre land in Koheda village.
