Judicial inquiry for violent incidents during farmers’ agitation in Aligarh-CM Rs. 5 lakh financial assistance to family of each deceased-CM
Lucknow : 15 August, 2010
Expressing grief over the violent incidents due to the on going agitation of
farmers of Mathura and Aligarh for the compensation of their acquired land, the
Chief Minister Ms. Mayawati has condemned the whole incident. She said it was the
top most priority of her government that the land of the farmers should be taken
after giving the proper compensation to them with mutual consent under contract
rules. She said that decision for the land compensation should be taken by the
officers considering seriously about all the aspects of the subject. Her government
would never accept that the land of the farmers could be taken by any industrialist
on cheaper rates or anybody could earn huge profits out of it, she added.
Terming the politics being done by the different opposition parties regarding
the compensation for farmers’ land, Ms. Mayawati said that Samajwadi Party before
becoming the well-wisher of farmers should have remembered the issue of acquiring
thousand acres of land forcibly by the earlier SP Government for Dadri Power Plant,
in which the land of farmers was taken on negligible price and SP Supremo had
given this land to his blue-eyed industrial house. The farmers had launched
vociferous agitation for the long period and finally they got some relief after going to
the court. She said that it would have been much better if SP President should have
looked at himself before speaking anything in this regard.
Criticising Samajwadi Party and other opposition parties, the Chief Minister
said that instead of misguiding farmers these parties should have inspired them to
put their issue before the government in a peaceful manner. These opposition
parties were shedding crocodile tears for getting political mileage, which is
meaningless. She said that Congress Party led Central Government had given lakhs
of hectare of land to industrialists on negligible price in the entire country and when
such party speaks about the struggle for providing proper compensation to farmers
by becoming their well-wisher, then it is beyond imagination.
Ms. Mayawati said that it was the clear-cut policy of our government that that
it would never overlook the interests of the farmers. Therefore, it had implemented
the clear-cut policy for land acquisition after coming in power in 2007, so that the
farmers could get the maximum compensation for their land. Discussions were held
with the representatives of farmers regarding the issue of land acquisition of Aligarh
farmers at the level of government and efforts were made for the consent, she
Taking the serious note of violent incidents occurred in Mathura and Aligarh
during the agitation of farmers the CM said that decision had been taken for holding
the judicial inquiry. An amount of providing Rs. 5 lakh financial assistance to the
family of each deceased in the violent incidents had been sanctioned, she added.
Ms. Mayawati said that directives had been given for constituting a committee
under the chairmanship of Commissioner Aligarh Division to seriously examine the
entire issue of land compensation of farmers, which would present its report to
government after hearing farmers’ view.
