Recently the ownership of 131 acres of land in Kanbargi for Scheme no.61 now rests with the Belagavi Urban Development Authority (BUDA). The process was commenced 13 years ago but the land acquisition could not be completed and now the 131 acres land has been handed over by the farmers to BUDA.
After this, the farmers whose land is been acquired have started to protest at the BUDA office itself.
Since Wednesday they have come to the office with their entire family with all food and grocery and are cooking there itself and sleeping at the BUDA office only.
They say as their land would be acquired they have nowhere to go so they have come here.
The BUDA scheme No.61 is spread across 160 acres of land, farmers of 105 acres have already given consent to BUDA for the layout on the basis of a 50:50 sharing basis. While the others had approached the court.
