Noida: Samajwadi Party workers today held demonstration here, protesting the arrest of farmers in Greater Noida.

Hundreds of SP workers led by Mahanagar president Rakesh Yadav assembled outside Jaipuria Plaza in Sector 26 and marched to City Magistrate office.

From there they proceeded to District Magistrate camp office and courted arrest.

Yadav said that farmers were holding protest as authority was not listening to their just demand of increase in compensation for land acquisition.

Farmers, who have been holding a protest for over a fortnight on the issue, had yesterday stopped the development work at three sites in Greater Noida, demanding a hike in compensation for land acquisition.

The district administration had arrested over two hundred agitating farmers and sent them to jail.
