Puducherry: The NCP has urged the Congress
government here to bring forward a legislation to protect
fertile farmlands and prevent activities of realtors, saying
that rapid conversion of agricultural lands into non farm
projects was causing various social ills.
G P Sarathy, secretary, NCP`s national committee, said the
Centre had made it clear that agricultural land should be used
only for agro related activities. But the Puducherry
administration was closing its eyes against realtors
activities, causing damage to the farm sector affecting
farmers and labourers.
G Sundaramoorthy, NCP local unit president, who was also
present, said NCP workers staged a demonstration near the
chief secretariat here today, demanding implementation of a
legislation to protect agricultural lands.
