Government to seek legal experts opinion to find solution to tenants problems

Addressing a gathering at a convention organised by the Moolageni Okkalu Rakshana Vedike here on Sunday, Acharya said that the discussions regarding the issue have already been started and the government had decided to frame law during the assembly session held in Belgaum.

“The issue will be discussed in the next assembly session. Meeting of all Deputy Commissioners concerned will be convened and reports will be sought from the revenue officials,” Acharya said.

Responding to Vedike’s allegation of certain builders threatening tenants to evacuate, Acharya assured that the government will never give opportunity for such acts. Government will take action if such cases are reported, he added.
