HUBLI: A forum of the Sea Bird Naval Base project evacuees has welcomed the Defence Ministry’s move to provide compensation to 160 affected families.

The compensation was released to the Special Land Acquisition Office in Dharwad on Friday.

Forum general secretary Ravindra Amadalli said the action of the Ministry has raised the hope of 800 families who parted with their land for the strategically important project.

The Defense Ministry should take a clue from the Supreme Court’s directive and deposit the compensation of other displaced too, he said.

“The Ministry has acted in the wake of the directive by the apex court. Hearing a contempt of court case on July 3, the Court had given a last chance to the former to remit the compensation money and warned of stringent action if it failed to do so,” he recalled.

The relentless fight of advocates Francis Lobo and Devadatta Kamat in the court had brought cheer to the displaced families, he said.

The Forum would continue its struggle till the last displaced family gets justice, he added.
