Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:
It’s ridiculous how Capt Amarinder Singh govt is cheating farmers by offering Rs 9.67 lakh/acre for Delhi-Katra expressway project.
Prices are being fixed on 3-yr average of collector rates, which need correction.
We won’t allow farmers’ land in Sangrur to be taken away for peanuts.
Punjab govt should take note of land acquisitions done for Zirakpur–Bathinda & Hoshiarpur–Khanauri projects for which acquisition was done in 2013 under the chief ministership of S Parkash Singh Badal.
Farmers received compensation between Rs 1.20 crore/Acre to Rs 6.25 cr per acre.
