The SDM further mentioned that the authorities started demolition action against those who didn’t leave the possession even after receiving their compensation, and provided land to the PWD (central works) for further work.
The SDM said that those landowners who had still not received their awards were apprised of demolition action as per the rules besides asking them to collect their compensation cheques at the earliest. He said that every single inch of the acquired land would be taken over by the administration with the police help thus paving the way for construction under the said project by providing land to the PWD (central works).
