Mumbai : On Monday, the Bombay High Court adjourned the petition filed against the State govern-ment, the collector of Pune and the Maharashtra Indust-rial Development Corporation (MIDC) as the petitioner failed to furnish documents which the court has asked him to submit. The petition has alleg-ed that the government along with MIDC is forcibly acquiring the lands in the Navlakha Umbre of Talegaon.

A division bench of Justice V. M. Kanade and Justice M. S. Karnik while hearing a bunch of petitions adjourned the matter for 4 weeks since the petitioner had failed to submit some documents which the court had earlier asked him to submit the documents to the court.

The petitioner Nitesh Nevshe, in his petition has alleged that the said parties are forcibly acquiring the ‘fertile’ land of nearly 35 farmers to convert the green patch into an indus-trial area and this acquisition is done under the land acqui-sition act of 1894.  Nevshe who appeared for the poor farmers, argued that the gov-ernment should not acquire the land for MIDC since the land is ‘fertile’ and that they should remove the stamp from the paper to acquire the land for industrial purpose.
