Noida: A group of farmers on Wednesday protested at Surajpur assembly area demanding a hike in compensation and developed plots for land acquired by the Noida Authority and Greater Noida Authority. Farmers’ groups, including All India Kisan Sabha, Bhartiya Kisan Parishad and Jai Jawan Jai Kisan Morcha, marched from Moser Baer roundabout in Greater Noida to Surajpur assembly area. Later, they met district magistrate Manish Kumar Verma and pressed home their demands. “The farmers have been demanding higher compensation for their land acquired by the Noida Authority and Greater Noida Authority. The higher compensation for land acquired and given to NTPC is also pending. The government had formed a three-member committee in February this year to study the issue and submit a report. We demand that the committee properly reflect our views in the report,” said Rupesh Verma, district president of All India Kisan Sabha. Sukhveer Khalifa of Bhartiya Kisan Parishad demanded that NTPC approve the enhanced compensation for the acquired land in Dadri. The district magistrate assured the farmers that their demands would be addressed, after which the protest came to an end.
