Short facts are that the writ-petitioner-respondents was the owner of the house known as "Hriday Nibash" within Mymensingh Municipality and the said house was requisitioned by the Collector of Mymensingh in H.R. Case No. 58/59-60 for the use of office of the Plant Protection Officer under the Agriculture Department. Subsequently, the house was occupied by the Regional Director of Agriculture Department for the last 5/6 years. In the meantime, process of acquisition of the property in question was started in L.A. Case No. 33 of 1965-66 and the same is still pending for acquisition. The property though not acquired by the Government, the Agriculture Department issued a tender on 15.5.1989 for renovation of the building in question at a cost of Tk. 3,55,000/-. The writ petitioner being aggrieved by the tender notice as owner of the property challenged the tender notice before the High Court Division in the writ petition.
(3.) The writ respondent-petitioners by filing an affidavit-in-opposition stated that the notification of the final acquisition of the said suit property in the official gazette has been delayed because of the successive representations made by the writ petitioner to the Ministry of Land Reforms and Land Administration and also for several civil suits between the Government and the owner of the house in question.;
