The farmers of Mazgaon, Macche, Peeranwadi gathered at Mazgaon cross today and the blocked the road for 4 hours.
The farmers were protesting against the KIADB and BUDA who are trying to buy out their lands for a new industrial sector. The farmers have been offered nominal compensation for their land, the protesters were saying. Already notices of acquisition have been given to the farmers.
The KIADB and BUDA are eying about 3000 acres of cultivated land for acquisition for a new industrial area and BUDA layout.
Farmers say that, if they take our land how will we earn and live. May what happen but we will not give our cultivated land under any circumstances.
