The High Court on Wednesday issued notices to the State Government, Deputy Secretary for Revenue Department and Rashtrotthana Parishat

(RSP) represented by its Secretary General in connection with a PIL alleging encroachment of gomala (grazing grounds) land at Nayakandranalli and Juganahalli near Doddaballapur taluk.

Hearing the petition filed by Dr Venkata Reddy, Vice- President of Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha, a Division Bench, comprising Chief Justice Vikramajit Sen and Justice Aravind Kumar also directed authorities to maintain status quo in the case.

The Bench adjourned the case to October 17 for further hearing. Rashtrotthana Parishat has written a letter addressing former Revenue Minister and BJP MLA Karunakar

Reddy seeking to allot 50 acres of land in Nayakandranalli and 23.3 acres in Juganahalli. Based on the requisition, Reddy had allegedly directed the concerned authorities to allot the land in favour of parishat in 2010. The petitioner has now moved the court alleging that the government has illegally allotted land meant for gomala to the Rashtrotthanana Parishat.
