Noida: Farmers affected by land acquisition here on Thursday stalled work by private builders to protest against the alleged non-implementation of High Court orders.
Farmers, under the banner `Kisan Sangarsh Samiti` stopped work and sat on a dharna in sectors 133, 128 and 142 along the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway.

"Though the authority had promised to implement the court orders, it has not yet given the developed plots," said Mahesh Awana, leader of the `samiti`.

According to him, the farmers will only resume work after the court order to give 10 percent developed land and 64 percent hike in compensation to farmers is implemented.
