Noida farmers call off Friday Delhi march

  • | Friday | 23rd February, 2024

The proposed Delhi march of farmers in Noida and Greater Noida on Friday has been called off after their meeting with the local administration and the police, a farmer group said. The Thursdays announcement comes a day after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath ordered formation of a three-member committee to look into the issue and resolve the woes of the farmers, who are demanding higher compensation and developed plots in lieu of their land acquired by the government in the past. Thousands of farmers from around 200 villages, who are protesting against the local authorities in Noida and Greater Noida, and the National Thermal Power Corporation (Dadri), had on February 8 made an unsuccessful attempt to go to Parliament to press for their demands but were stopped at the Delhi border here by the police. Representatives of Bharatiya Kisan Parishad, All India Kisan Sabha and Jai Jawan Jai Kisan Morcha on Thursday afternoon held a meeting with the police officers and the administration, including District Magistrate, in Greater Noida.
