DELHI: Farmers have intensified their agitation yet again in the entire Gautam Budh Nagar district halting construction work at around a dozen developers’ sites. Noida farmers stopped construction work in Sectors 74, 79, 112 and 119, vandalized the equipment and even thrashed the labourers. Farmers have declared that they will not allow construction to resume till Noida and Greater Noida authorities honour the Allahabad high court order and give them additional compensation and developed plots.

Noida Authority officials invited the protesters to discuss the issue, but farmers refused the offer. They are now planning to set fire to the effigy of Authority chairman Rama Raman on Friday. Fearing a backlash, developers have sought security at their construction sites.

“We are not demanding anything extra from the Authority. We just want them to implement the court order,” said Naresh Yadav, head of all Noida villages. “The past and present state governments and the authorities have been looting the farmers in collaboration with the developers. We will not allow the developers to carry out construction work in Noida till our demands are not met,” he added.

Farmers say that settlement of their land-related demands has been put into a cold storage from the past two years. The court had given an order to pay farmers 64% increased compensation and 5% developed plots. Besides, the farmers also want regularization of abadi land in their villages.
