New Delhi: Coming as a great relief to GNOIDA and newly elected SP government of Uttar Pradesh, the Allahabad High Court has extended the time limit of filing reply in connection with land acquisition at former Chief Minsiter Mayawati’s village Badalpur.

Farmers of Badalpur and Sadopur had challenged the land acquisitions made in these villages way back in year 2007.

Brahma Singh Nagar who is fighting the case on farmers behalf said on Monday that the Supreme Court had issued a notice to the Greater Noida Authority as well as to the Uttar Pradesh government in 2009 but they have failed to file their replies so far.

On the other hand, the Allahabad High Court while honouring government’s request extended the time limit by 4 more weeks to file a reply. The court also said that the time limit could be extended by another 3 weeks.

Farmers also accused the then BSP government for adopting a partisan stand in the acquisition of land in these villages.

They have further alleged that former BSP government took utmost care not to touch land owned by relatives of Mayawati during acquisition.

Remarkably, Allahabad High Court had rejected the petition filed by the farmers of these villages which compelled them to knock at the doors of the Supreme Court and a status quo is being maintained in the case since 2009.
