We want new industries, development and at the same time we want our economies back bone the “Farmer” to live a poverty ridden life all his life and now is being left landless after the various land acquisitions notices they got in the past month.
Fertile farm land was ordered to be acquired for the Machhe- Halga bypass part of the Hyderabad -Panjim national highway. More than 500 complaints were received from farmers from Mache, Peeranwadi, Vadgaon, Angol and Khanapur areas.
Yesterday farmers from Peeranwadi, Hunchanhatti, Balmatti, Kattalwadi were shcoked to receive notices of their land acquisition by KIADB. Around 1200 acres of land will acquired by KIADB as per the notices received.
The farmers protest but no one hears them. Today also the farmers from Peeranwadi and other areas plan to meet and protest the against the govt. for acquiring their farm land.
“Agriculture is the backbone of the Indian economy” , this sentence would be history and farmer without farm land will not have his own backbone standing straight.
This question of land acquisition of farm land will and always come up and the poor farmer gets stuck. Several promises are made to the farmers but how many of them are kept is unknown.
If we need to progress, have industries we will have to acquire land, there is no option, but why cant the govt. think of acquiring barren land first and develop that.
If we have factories on all farm land what will we eat, what a country needs is a sustainable food production and availability of food. Can factories produce rice, wheat or can we eat steel for dinner and cement for break fast.
