HYDERABAD: In a major relief to the Telangana government, the Supreme Court on Monday refused to stay works pertaining to the Sundilla reservoir being taken up as part of the Telangana government’s prestigious multi-purpose Kaleswaram lift irrigation project.

The Supreme Court was dealing with a special leave petition filed by the aggrieved farmers of the Goliwada village in Peddapalli district in the state. 


The farmers had earlier challenged the order of a vacation bench of the Hyderabad High Court which had refused to stay the interim order of a single judge paving the way for dispossession of the farmers of Goliwada village from their lands for construction of a pump house for the barrage.


While refusing to stay the works, the court advised the petitioners to submit their objections, if any, with regard to compensation offered by the government for their lands acquired for the project. 


The government counsel told the court that the state had acquired 240 acres of under  the Land Acquisition Act 2013 for construction of Sundilla reservoir after depositing prescribed compensation in the bank accounts.


While posting the matter to the second week of July for further hearing, the Supreme Court categorically said that it did not see any urgency to issue a stay order on the works and that the government can go ahead with its project works.
