HYDERABAD: The AP government on Thursday told the Hyderabad High Court that it will not interfere with the agricultural operations of the petitioner farmers lands situated in the CRDA region without following the due process of law.

Additional advocate general Dammalapati Srinivas made this submission before Justice A Rajasheker Reddy who was dealing with a batch of writ petitions by M Rammohan Reddy and several other farmers who sought directions to the authorities to forthwith pass orders as per Rule-7 of the Andhra Pradesh Capital City Land Pooling Scheme (Formulation and Implementation) Rules 2015 on the objection petitions filed by them. They wanted the government to delete their lands from the land pooling scheme.

Petitioners’ counsel complained that the farmers were not allowed to raise crops in the agriculture lands to be acquired under the land pooling scheme of the AP Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) Act, 2014. He contended that the authorities were making efforts to interfere with their property without considering the objection petitions, etc., filed by them. He urged the Court to direct the respondent authorities to allow the petitioners into their agricultural lands and allow them to continue agricultural operations.

The additional AG told the Court that the authorities would act only as per law. The authorities are in the process of considering the objections filed by the farmers and would pass appropriate orders within two weeks.

Justice Rajasheker Reddy directed to produce the records before the court and posted the case after two weeks.
