Jaipur: From Wednesday, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) will once again start organising camps in villages to compensate farmers for their fields that have been acquired for the 47-km-long Ring Road project. However, the Ring Road Sangharsh Samiti decided to continue boycotting the camps.
According to the sources, the Authority will set up camps in 15 villages. In these camps, the officials will issue reservation letters to farmers. The farmers will be also asked to fill optional letters for the location of their compensated land in the proposed Ring Road Project.
The Authority, earlier, had set up these camps. However, the farmers gave cold response to such camps and a few farmers had attended the camps while most of them boycotted.
The Ring Road Sanghasrsh Samiti, a group against the project, had asked the farmers to boycott the camps until their demands are met.
The Samiti is demanding from Authority to acquire farmers land for the 90-metre Ring Road instead of 360 metres proposed.
Also they want cash compensation except land for their fields.
The representatives of the Samiti again have been active and geared up to mobilise farmers asking them not to attend these camps.
