HC refuses to stay public hearing on GAIL pipeline plan

The Madras High Court on Tuesday refused to interfere with a series of public hearings which the Tamil Nadu government has planned to hold in Chennai to ascertain the views of farmers who would be affected by the GAIL’s600-km gas pipeline from Kochi to Bengaluru.

Dismissing a PIL filed by advocate M Vetriselvan, a division bench comprising Justice Elipe Dharma Rao and Justice M Venugopal desribed it as ‘publicity interest litigation’.

The Bench said: “The project of the Government of India is for distribution and supply of gas to household, commercial and transport sectors, which is in the larger interest of society. ”

Extending her support to farmers up in arms against the gas pipeline project of the GAIL India Ltd, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa last week said no action should be taken against their interests.

She also announced three public hearings next month to ascertain the farmers' opinion after which an appropriate decision that would not affect farmers would be taken.
