Farmers who gave their land for the expansion of the Sambra airport today asked that they should be given their due compensation or atleast the Govt must give them a rope to hang themselves.
Today during a press conference at Sambra airport, where the new airport terminal would be inaugurated on Sept 14, Farmers Dilip Chavan and Sanadi spoke and asked the BJP leaders present at the conference to atleast get them a rope so that they can hang themselves.
Out of the 370 acres land acquired, for 250 acres of land, compensation has to be paid at a rate of 35 lakhs per acre, but the same has not yet been made even after the court issued the same order in 2016.
The farmers said they would stall the inauguration of the terminal if they were not paid.
Sanadi’s 14 acre land has been acquired for airport expansion but he has not been paid his compensation by the airports authority, he said.
