Haryana to revise land acquisition compensation for Green Corridor
The government has decided to revise compensation for land to be acquired for 152 D Green Corridor (National Highway). Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar made an announcement in this regard after a meeting with Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari in New Delhi on Wednesday.
Khattar led a delegation of agitating farmers to meet Gadkari in an attempt to pacify the agitating farmers. For the past few months, farmers of 25 villages in Jind and Dadri districts have been sitting on a dharna terming the already announced compensation award as insufficient. As many as 4,000 acres of land will be acquired for the Green Corridor (National Highway) which will be constructed from Ismailabad (Kurukshetra) to Kotputli in Rajasthan.
