The Punjab and Haryana high court on Thursday issued fresh notices to the Punjab government and the Greater Mohali Development Authority (GMADA) in the land acquisition case of a resident of Majra village in SAS Nagar, who has sought to implead chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal as parties in the case.
The court extended the stay till the next hearing on October 8.
The division bench of justices Hemant Gupta and Raj Rahul Garg asked the government to file its response on the amended petition filed by Juveeza Chadha.
Earlier, the impleadment of the two was sought through separate applications filed subsequent to the main petition.
Chadha has challenged the acquisition of land for the construction of a road leading to a resort in SAS Nagar district partly owned by the Badal family. The petitioner is a resident of Majra village through which the controversial 100-ft-wide and 1.3-km-long road is being constructed. The resort, Metro Eco Green Resorts, at Palanpur village, is located 2 km from where the road ends. Palanpur is about 20 km from Chandigarh. The high court has stayed the construction of the road on the land owned by her.
