Farmers from Kashmir, Jammu exhibit unity; Authorities unnerved
Land Acquisition for Ring / Semi Ring Roads
1/23/2018 11:38:02 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 23: As farmers from Kashmir valley and Jammu region exhibited unity by holding a joint press conference in Jammu on Monday , authorities seem to be unnerved as they smell a mass agitation across state over the issue of alleged forcible land acquisition for Ring and Semi Ring road projects in Jammu & Kashmir regions.
Details available with Early Times reveal that several offices bearers and executive members from Semi Ring Road Land owners welfare committee Kashmir along with their counterparts in Jammu held a joint press conference in Jammu on Monday wherein they threatened for a mass agitation if National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) or Government tried to forcibly occupy their land for two new highway projects.
The farmers from Kathua , Samba , Jammu , Udhampur, Pulwama, Budgam, Srinagar, Baramulla, Bandipora & Ganderbal districts resolved at Jammu joint press conference that they will sit in their fields along with their families and cattle if their land is forcibly occupied by Government. Reliable sources have told Early Times that Revenue Minister A R Veeri has now thrown the ball in Chief Ministers court and its is CM who will take the final call over this issue.
While talking to Early Times Kulbhushan Khajuria and Ghulam Ahmad Paul who are spearheading this movement in Jammu and Kashmir divisions respectively said that farmers affected by ring / semi ring road projects in Jammu / Kashmir valley will continue their struggle until Government accepts the demands for fair and legitimate compensation from National Highway Authority of India (NHAI).
"During private negotiation we will impress upon NHAI to give us 4 times more compensation of our land , trees , fruit orchards etc" said Haji Ghulam Hassan Patron of Semi Ring Road Welfare Committee.
Pertinent to mention that NHAI has agreed to pay 4 times more compensation than market land in rural areas and 2 times in urban areas provided state of J&K adopts Central Land Acquisition Act of 2013 but Govt of J&K is not agreeing to adopt the same. On the other hand NHAI is not agreeing for Private Negotiations and in between farmers are made scapegoats. In past Northern Railways held private negotiations which is a provision under the existing J&K Land Acquisition Act.
"Government must stop putting pressure on poor farmers to give away their land on very low price as this is creating a public outcry not only in Jammu but in Kashmir region as well" said S C Dubey senior leader of Jammu based Ring Road Committee.
