`State Govt dodging PMO on Ring Road'
Affected farmers hold protest in Srinagar
11/19/2018 10:40:50 PM
Early Times Report

Srinagar, Nov 19: As construction of Semi Ring Road in Srinagar is yet to be taken up inspite of being formally inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, farmers have alleged that State Govt is dodging the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) as compensation is yet to be paid to the affected farmers in most of the villages.
Farmers affected by Semi Ring Road held a massive protest against Government in Srinagar on Monday in Press Enclave over forcible land acquisition.
Farmers have alleged that Divisional Commissioner Kashmir is misleading authorities especially the Governor administration as work was allotted to construction company Ramky in February 2018 but not even 1 % of the construction work has been taken up
As reported already an alternate road link is coming up in Kashmir valley connecting Gallandar Pampore with Ganderbal. The proposed highway will pass through Chadoora , Budgam , Narbal , Ranbir Grah , Sarai Dangarpora and culminate at Manigam in Ganderbal.
In the 1st phase, Gallandar to Narbal project will be taken up and then in the 2nd phase Manigam Ganderbal road link will be constructed .
Framers is Budgam are most affected by this road project where around 4700 kanals of land will be acquired.
In Ganderbal 2341 Kanals of land will be acquired. The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) will be executing this project, through M/S Ramky Infrastructure. PM Modi had inaugurated the project in Srinagar in Mya this year but till date not even 1 % of the project has been completed. The authorities are even yet to axe the trees that have already been paid compensation.
The Semi Ring Road projectt is monitored by Prime Minister's Office (PMO) directly and state administration especially the Div Comm and DCs are misleading Government as compensation money is yet to be disbursed to them .
"We appeal PMO to look into the reasons why work on the road project is not being taken up inspite of the fact that PM Modi himself inaugurated the project in Srinagar during May this year ? " said G A Paul President Ring Road Land Owners Welfare Committee
"Govt must think about alternate livelihood of farmers who are losing more than 70 % of their total land holding.
The National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) pays adequate compensation to the farmers / other persons whose land and property is acquired for construction of highways in other states of India. 4 times in Rural areas , 2 times in Urban areas, but not in J&K as Central Land Acquisition Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act is not applicable in our state " said Ali Mohammad General Secretary of Committee. As per the provisions of new Land Acquisition Rehabilitation & Resettlement Act (LARR) enacted by Congress lead UPA Government in 2013, land and property owners get 4 times more compensation than the market value of land/ property in rural areas and 2 times in urban areas, but the new law is not applicable in J&K.
Framers have appealed that Governor Administration must come up with an ordinance for a enactment of new version of land acquisition act in J&K so that affected people in J&K get adequate compensation during acquisition process .
Compensation to Orchardists :
"The compensation paid to apple , pear and plum orchardists is between Rs 15 to 16 / Kg. This rate has been fixed way back in 1995 with 2 % increase after every 2 years. Right now even a B class apple per kg fetches Rs 50 to 60 / Kg in market , but the farmers are paid mere Rs 16 which is complete injustice.
The matter has been brought into the notice of ex Minister for Horticulture, Secretary Horticulture and Director Horticulture Kashmir who all have given assurance to revise the rates .
But 1 year has elapsed but rates haven't been revised. Even High Court also gave a direction to Government for enhancing rates the orders haven't been implemented by Govt," said Ghulam Qadir Gudsathoo an affected orchardist.
