He was speaking after addressing the protest organized in front of the Udupi DC office on Sep 30 Tuesday. Shettar also said that in the affidavit, the government has mentioned that nearly 4.5 lakh acre revenue land and 2.5 lakh acres of forest land used as ‘Bagar Hukum’ (without orders) land would be acquired in the State.
