PATNA: The state government has decided to resolve the 33 years’ old dispute over the 1024 acres of land of Bihar State Housing Board (BSHB) in Digha area of the city. Chief secretary Anjani Kumar Singh has instructed the BSHB to construct a boundary wall around 400 acres of the disputed land on the western side of Ashiana-Digha Road.

But, when the BSHB on Tuesday tried to evict people from two of the encroached plots of land, which have been recently allotted to the CBSE and regional passport office, they had to face violent protests from the locals.

BSHB managing director Amrendra Prasad Singh said the bidding process for construction of the boundary wall around the 400 acres land would begin soon. “We have been instructed by the chief secretary to construct the boundary wall there. Accordingly, tenders will be floated shortly for construction of the wall,” Singh told TOI on Tuesday.
