SANGAREDDY: In a major move to pacify the agitating oustees of Mallanna Sagar project, Medak district administration has decided to provide compensation according to Land Acquisition Act-2013, instead of GO 123 as previously decided.

It may be recalled that people from several villages, including Etigadda Kistapur, Pallepahad and Erravelli villages of Thoguta mandal, opposed the land acquisition process by the government.

They claimed that the compensation paid through GO 123 would not benefit them and demanded the government to provide relief through Land Acquisition Act-2013, which would fetch them money and also a government job to one of their family members.

Earlier, district collector, joint collector and Revenue Divisional Officer (RDO) tried to persuade the villagers, but in vain.

After the collector, Ronald Rose, gave a call for negotiations, the representatives from the said villages on Friday came for discussions with Siddipet RDO Muthyam Reddy and other officials.

The meeting was held at Sangareddy. The representatives of Etigadda Kistapur, Pallepahad and Erravelli villages, which are going to be completely submerged into the Mallanna Sagar project were briefed about Tukkapur, Yellareddypeta and other villages, which had already given their lands for the project.

However, the  representatives made it clear that they doesn't want to give up their lands as per GO 123.

After representatives left the meeting, officials held discussion and came to an opinion to provide compensation through Land Acquisition Act-2013.

However, they had decided to hold one more meeting and negotiate with the representatives on the issue.
