Lucknow: Protesting against the Uttar Pradesh government's move to acquire fertile land of 850 villages in western districts of the state for the ambitious Yamuna Expressway project, the Communist Party of India has chalked out a four phase agitation programme.

State secretary of CPI, Dr Girish in a statement here said today that in the four phase agitation lasting for the next five months, different programmes would be held in Hathras, Mathura, Aligarh and Agra districts.

In the first phase beginning October 25, CPI assisted by Kisan Sabha would create awareness in villages against the project, which would deprive farmers of most fertile agricultural land by organising cycle marches.

In the second phase from November 11, dharnas would be staged at the tehsil headquarters on separate dates.

Girish said that in the third phase in December, dharnas would be staged at the district level in all the four affected districts, while in the last phase in February a joint rally would be held in Hathras in which central leaders of CPI would also take part.
