Many farmers blocked the road with their cattle and bullock carts. BUDA has issued notices to farmers of survey nos 486 to 526. The protesting farmers said that all these lands are very fertile and BUDA is leaving away the barren land and is going in for acquiring fertile agricultural land which is the only source of income to the family. It is alleged that there is pressure from political clout for the acquisition and conversion of the fertile land into plots.
Farmers have approached the High court in this matter.
