Demand compensation from the peasants of Nangli village
The BJP took the issue of Delhi farmers from the Vidhansabha to the road. The BJP described the Delhi government’s compensation as unfair and also protested. The protestors said that the Delhi government gives compensation for the land of the farmers of Nangli village but deprives the farmers of the real price. Led by Virendra Sachdeva, working president of Delhi BJP, farmers of Nangli and Rawta villages protested outside the assembly. Sachdeva said the government was trying to forcibly acquire the land by giving undue compensation. BJP will not allow farmer’s land to be pillaged at the cost of pennies. The government should provide compensation of Rs 2.5 crore per hectare to the people of Nangli village at market rates. Drain water is discharged into the farmers’ fields.
