“The Mayawati Government had erred in acquiring the land by denying the land owners their right to raise objection”
In a fresh jolt to the Mayawati Government in Uttar Pradesh, the Supreme Court on Wednesday quashed the State's move to acquire private land by invoking the “emergency clause” in Jyotiba Phule Nagar for construction of a district jail.
A Bench of Justice G. S. Singhvi and Justice H. L. Dattu said the State had seriously erred in acquiring the land by denying the land owners their valuable right to raise objections and being heard to express their grievances.
The Court had recently quashed the State Government's acquisition of vast tracts of land in Noida, a decision which had hit hard major real estate developers and thousands of house owners who had invested in these projects.
