Farmers of Halga, Gandhi Nagar, Ambewadi and some others areas gave a memorandum at the DC office stating that their land should not be acquired.
In the case of Halga, the land which is being acquired is earmarked as agriculture land in the CDP and no amendment to this has been done till now and hence the said land cannot be acquired for Drainage filtration plant. The memorandum says that, acquisition action is being done at the instance of MLA Abhay Patil. Already 50 acres of land in Alarward is acquired. The land acquired at Alarward by the CCB resolution passed in 1987 is barren.
The farmers of Gandhi Nagar accused that the MLA is making us of his office 13 acres of land of Sy.No:628,629 & 630.
The Govt. has no proposal for land acquisition in this area but the MLA is trying to do this through the KIADB. The matter has already been taken to court and the court in its interim order has contended that the acquisition of the property is totally impermissible in view of the CDP as the lands in question are earmarked for agricultural purpose, hence the KIADB notification is illegal.
The members of the Belgaum Shetkari Sanghatna were present in huge numbers.
