Govt not to acquire 590 acres

Hundreds of farmers from Dasarakoppalu, Mavinahalli and Chikkakundagula villages in Hassan had been staging a dharna in front of the deputy commissioner’s office over several weeks opposing the land acquisition.

“The Government will return the land to the owners. I request the farmers to withdraw their satyagraha,” the Chief Minister said in the Assembly. The Karnataka Housing Board had issued the final notification for acquiring the farm land.
