Jaipur: The farmers group, which is against the Ring Road project, adopted an 'odd' method to meet their demands, poised on the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA).
The farmers have decided to continue their protest against the project for at least six months until the proposed land acquisition rehabilitation and resettlement (LARR), 2011, bill is not passed in Parliament. The bill offers good compensation and favourable conditions to the farmers whose land is acquired for a government project. The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government had introduced LARR bill in Lok Sabha during first week of the month.
Since then, Ring Road Sangharsh Samiti has been motivated and gearing up for their demands. The farmers are of the view that the state government will be forced to make good compensation as per bill and all their demands will be met.
"That is why we have started to protest for six months during which the bill will be probably passed. Meanwhile, we will also not allow the JDA official (along with contacted company for the project) to do work on our land. We will continuously 'disturb' their work," said a leader associated with the Samiti.
The farmers protested against the JDA officials when they went to survey their land for project.
