Roadblock hits construction of Bamluna spill channel

Affected farmers demand compensation at market rate

Bamluna (Kangan): The farmers whose land has been acquired for construction of a water spill channel from Wangat to Kijpora have demanded compensation at existing market rates.
 Authorities have acquired 53 kanals of land for construction of the channel at a cost of Rs 1.50 lakh per kanal. However, the affected farmers claim that the amount is not according to prevailing market rates.
 “This is sheer injustice with us. The authorities fixed the cost of the land at their own will and did not enter into any negotiations with us,” said Ghulam Nabi numberdar Bamilina.
 “The authorities had agreed to look into our demand. They even gave us some payment saying it is an advance. 
 Ironically the authorities now refuse to pay us as per market rates. We have been deceived,” said Ghulam Rasool a farmer.
 ”A kanal of land in adjacent villages fetches nearly six lakh rupees. We have been paid peanuts. We apprised the authorities to review our case. Instead we are being forced to vacate our land,” said Abdul Rehman of Bamluna
 When contacted the Additional Deputy Commissioner Kangan, Muhammad Haroon Malik, refuted the allegations.
 “The farmers have taken eighty percent payment under protest and they have to handover possession of land in any case.
 "We have not deceived the farmers but are following the norms. If they will create hurdles in our work then law will take its own course. Those responsible for creating trouble will be dealt with strictly" the ADC said.
 The farmers have appealed local MLA and Deputy Commissioner Ganderbal to look into the matter.
