Srinagar: Inhabitants of various villages of South Kashmir’s Anantnag District on Wednesday staged a massive protest against the state government for its ‘failure’ to provide them desirable rates of land coming under the road widening of the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway.


Scores of inhabitants of Sangam, Naina Gund,Halmula, Khalil and Donipora of Anantnag District assembled here at Mushtaq Press Enclave and staged demonstration.


The protestors claimed that government has failed to provide them desirable rates for the land coming under the road widening of National Highway.


The protestors raised the anti-government slogans, “mukhloot sarkar hai hai.”


They were also carrying the placards that read, “Give us proper compensation, Government has duped us.”


Mohammad Subhan, a protestor told Agence India Press that, “Most of our land comes under the road widening and for that government is not paying us as per the current market rates. The current rate for a Malra of land is more than two lakh while the government is providing only Rs.48873 for the same.”


They claimed that concerned authorities had assessed the rates in 2009 but were yet to provide the proper amount to the affected people.


“Government has only paid a meager amount to a small group of people,” they said.


The business community of the area also shared the same views and claimed that they were losing their business owing to the hollow promises made by the government.


“Most of our bat industry has gone under the road widening and more than 10000 of the employees have lost their jobs. The government should either provide us alternative land or give us sufficient amount to buy another piece of land for the construction,” Abdul Kareem, an owner of bat industry said.


The protestors threatened that they would come to the streets if government failed to provide them desirable rates. (AIP News)
