A full bench of the Allahabad High Court on Monday upheld its judgement which had quashed land acquisition in some villages of Gautam Buddh Nagar district in Uttar Pradesh.
The Government expressed
concern over investors losing their money due to a court order
that said land in Greater Noida should be returned to farmers
as they had not got due compensation.
Hundreds of farmers on Thursday sat on
dharna at Sector 74-75 here, protesting land acquisition by
the state government and demanding hike in compensation.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday hit out at the Mayawati government over its land acquisition policy, saying it was killing farmers for making justified demands.
The SC recently asked the UP govt to return the 156 hectares of land it had acquired in Shahberi village.
