Uttarakhand CM promises to follow new directives after SC intervenes in Haldwani eviction


Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami has stated that the government will comply with the Supreme Court’s order to stay the eviction of thousands of families living on railway land in Haldwani district. The Supreme Court has also issued a notice to the Uttarakhand government and India Railways on the matter. The eviction had been previously ordered by the Uttarakhand High Court, but the Supreme Court has put a stop to it while the case is being examined. Dhami has affirmed that the government will follow the court’s orders and proceed according to their decision.

CM Dhami stated that the land in question is owned by the railway, and that they will follow the order of the court. The Supreme Court has issued a notice to both the Uttarakhand government and India Railways regarding the appeals against the Uttarakhand High Court’s decision to clear encroachments from railway land in the Banbhoolpura area of Haldwani.

Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Abhay S Oka, who headed the bench, granted temporary relief to those who have been protesting since 20th December when Uttrakhand High Court made its decision.
