Telangana High Court on Tuesday said the State government was at liberty to go ahead with its plans of acquiring Bison Polo ground -presently owned by the Union Ministry of Defence- in Secunderabad since it had Centre’s in-principle approval.

Since the Government of India had agreed in principle to part with the Bison Polo ground, the Telangana state government can continue with further proceedings related to it, a division bench of the HC comprising Thottathil B. Radhakrishnan and Justice A. Rajasheker Reddy said. The bench observed this while hearing a set of three PILs filed by different persons, questioning the proposal by Telangana government to acquire Bison Polo ground.

The petitions were posted on

Tuesday as the Additional Advocate General J. Ramchandra Rao during the previous hearing appealed to the bench to expedite their hearing since it got the Centre’s consent to secure that land.

The Assistant Solicitor General K. Laxman confirmed to the bench that the Centre had “in principle agreed” to give away the land to the State government. The bench told the lawyers for the petitioners that there should not be any objection for them if the Centre had consented to the proposal. It was for the state government to take a call on the matter. The AAG said the government was ready to give whatever clarifications the petitioners wanted on the matter.
