Hi Tech City Ghaziabad-Farmers Protest on Compensation

Farmers stage protest outside GDA office

Ghaziabad, Nov 25 (PTI) Hundreds of farmers today staged a demonstration outside the office of Ghaziabad Development Authority demanding proper rate for the land acquired from them for developing a hi-tech city.
GDA has been acquiring land of 14 villages for setting up the hi-tech city that will be developed by private builders.
The farmers, under the leadership of Dr Jitender Nagar, also protested the visit of state housing secretary, who visited the GDA to hold meeting with its officials.
Though officials assured of “lawful action” in the land acquisition process, farmers demanded that they should get the land rate equal to that of Greater Noida.
They also threatened to take back their land acquired for the project if their demands were not met.
