Mysuru/Bengaluru, September 5:- The appeal made by Vijayashreepura Kshemabivrudhi Sangha in Karnataka High Court to set aside a court order passed in a writ petition was dismissed on Monday.
A writ appeal was filed by the residents of Vijayashreepura under ‘Vijayashreepura Kshemabivrudhi Sangha (Okkuta)’ at the High Court and had requested to set aside a court order passed in favour of the respondent landlords.
The High Court judge Justice Dinesh Maheshwari and Justice R Devdas who took up the appeal on Monday stated that the appeals deserve to be, and are, dismissed. All interlocutory applications do not remain for consideration and are therefore disposed.”
The court which heard the appeal of the residents of Vijashreepura to set aside a court order noted that, “We deem it necessary to observe that the unauthorised occupants have invoked the extraordinary jurisdiction of the court in the name of various associations. The prayer for regularisation has been rejected in more than one batch of writ petitions, it is evident that several other petitions are again filed, seeking the same relief. The unauthorised occupants of the land in question cannot be allowed to run riot in this manner. There is no gainsaying that there has to be finality to every litigation. Hence, the decision taken herein shall apply to all the persons and associations representing such persons, who claim to be in possession of any portion of the land in question. Since no contentious questions of law arise for decision making in these petitions, it does not appear necessary to elaborate upon any of the decisions cited by either of the parties.”
“For the reasons stated above, these appeals deserve to be, and are, dismissed. All interlocutory applications do not remain for consideration and are therefore disposed off,” the judgment stated.
Now with the dismissal of the appeal made by the Vijayshreepura Kshemabivrudhi Sangha, the Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) needs to take up a quick decision on the Vijayshreepura land row.’ KK
