'Govt to acquire land near zero line, compensate farmers'
Jammu: Minister for Medical Education, R S Chib today said the Government would acquire land near the fencing along zero line for which the farmers would be given appropriate compensation.
Interacting with newly elected Sarpanches and Panches of R S Pura and Bishnah Blocks, Chib said the cases of the left out farmers whose land had been acquired for construction of Ditch-cum-Bandh (DCB) by army would also be examined for working out compensation for them.
“The government was keen to devolve powers to the people to make them active partners in local governance”, he said adding the Panchayat polls were accordingly announced on priority. He said the Block Samities and Zilla Parishads would be formed soon after the on-going election process ends and Panhes and Sarpanches would emerge as vital institutions of local governance.
