Bharuch: The large number of farmers gathered at Bharuch in protest of land acquisition policy framed by Petrochemicals and petroleum investment region (PCPIR) and Bharuch Ankleshwar Urban Development Authority (BAUDA).

The farmers reached collector’s office in a large rally, displaying banners of protest and submitted memorandum to additional collector and appraised the concern about polices of both the authorities.

Jayesh Patel, president Bharuch and Narmada district farmers association said, “No proper information is passed on to the farmers, the draft development plan prepared by the consultant is having several mistakes, it seems that ground reality is not taken care in a plan.”

The policy to acquire agriculture land in the name of the development is nothing but to grab land from farmers at very cheap rate. It seems that government want to abolish farmers from the land on Bharuch, Ankleshwar and Vagra.

Mavsang Parmar, president Khedut Hit Rakshak Samiti said, “We will protest till end to get the justice.”
