The families who will be affected with GAIL pipeline project between Kochi and Mangalore have formed Kochi-Mangalore Gaspipeline Santhrastara Horata Kriya Samithi and have clarified that they will not give up their land even if the authorities pay highest amount for the land.

Addressing a press meet here on Tuesday, Rajaram Bhat of the samithi said that the Central government and Supreme Court has given guidelines for acquiring land for development work. However, the GAIL authorities have sidelined the guidelines and have started the acquisition process.
