Thiruvananthapuram, Mar 19: The entire Opposition Congress-led UDF members today staged a walkout in the Kerala Assembly over the alleged irregularities in the sale of 70 acres of land by public sector HMT to a Mumbai-based real estate company.

Before leading the members out of the House, Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly Oommen Chandy asked the Government whether it would take over the surplus land from the private company under the provisions of the Land Reforms Act.

He alleged that the government was trying to protect the interests of the real estate group.

In his reply, Revenue Minister K P Rajendran said the issue was now before the High Court and the Government would take further steps on the basis of the court verdict.
