Jaipur: The list of properties built during an agreement with the central government on the sharing of properties of 18 princely states of Rajasthan has disappeared. The Rajasthan High Court has also issued an order in 2015 to make the list public. The High Court has once again asked for the list to be made public in four weeks in the cradle of the earlier order.
A bench of Chief Justice S Ravindra Bhatt and Justice Inderjit Singh passed the order while hearing a PIL filed by the Public Property Protection Committee. However, the Central Government has already told the High Court that they have only a pre-eminent copy of the covine. Original copy verification has already been sent to the state government several decades ago. The state government, on the other hand, has refused to possess any such copy.
Mandola, who is also a public property protection committee member, had moved a petition in 2015 saying that during the formation of Rajasthan, there was an agreement between the then 18 princely states of the state and the government on the sharing of properties in 1949. Under this, some properties were owned by the government, assuming that of the erstwhile princely states.
