Heard learned counsel for the petitions, learned Standing Counsel representing respondents no. 1, 2 and 4 and Sri Anurag Khann, learned counsel appearing on behalf of the respondent no. 3.
The main grievance of the petitioner is that the land sought to be acquired under the notifications dated 13.9.2006 and 29.10.2006 (Annexures- 1 and 2 to the writ petition ) is abadi and that the petitioners shall suffer irreparable loss if the land in question is acquired.
