Chennai, Apr 24 (UNI) The Agri-Horticultural Society Secretary V Krishnamurthy moved the Madras High Court to review the order made in a land lease case and expunge the remarks made against him.
In his review petition, Mr Krishnamurthy submitted that it was not correct for the court to observe that land was sub-leased to Woodlands Hotel by him. He also contended that he became Secretary of the Society in August 1996 only, and the Woodlands became lessee of the Society since 1962. In fact, the lease in favour of the Hotel had expired in 1985 and the term was extended by the previous committee headed by Mr Justice R Sadasivam by a resolution dated April four, 1985 and it was sent to Tamil Nadu Government for approval.
Hence, the obeservation made against him are to be expunged from the order, he added.
He further submitted that the allegations that he is using the premises for his car rental business or his other business activities were not made by any authority and are not connected to the issue of resumption of land, and hence the directions in the judgement should be expunged.
It may be recalled that a division bench of the Madras High Court upheld the government order to take back the land by the Society on lease.
