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.
