Demand for compensation to the farmers of Nangli village

The BJP raised the issue of the farmers of Delhi from the Vidhansabha to the road. Describing the compensation given by the Delhi government as unfair, the BJP also protested. The protesters said that the Delhi government is giving compensation for the land of the farmers of Nangli village, but it is depriving the farmers of the actual price. Under the leadership of Delhi BJP working president Virendra Sachdeva, farmers of Nangli and Rawta villages protested outside the assembly. Sachdeva said that the government was trying to forcibly acquire the land by giving undue compensation. BJP will not allow the farmer’s land to be looted at the cost of pennies. The government should give compensation of Rs 2.5 crore per acre to the people of Nangli village at the market rate. Drain water is being released in the fields of the farmers.
