“The case is already in the High Court and the stay order has been granted till the next date of hearing. We are hopeful of getting justice from the Court,” he said.

Regarding the allegations of violations on the resort, Subbaiah said that some vested interests were bent on levelling false charges against the resort.

“A series of investigations and surveys have proved that we have not encroached any natural streams as alleged by those vested interests. Moreover, we have volunteered to construct a separate road to facilitate the movement of tribals and  we are spending over Rs. 70 lakh on it,” he said.
