The government often acquires lands in order to implement different infrastructure projects like roads, railways, canals and pipelines. In the process of obtaining the lands, already constructed buildings and houses are demolished as occupants, in most of the cases, refuse to vacate the lands. Despite the fact that the government has all the right to acquire lands following a legal procedure, it is also true that evicted people become homeless and their sufferings know no bounds whenever such an initiative is taken.
