SUKTEL: NARASINGHA SEEKS FRESH LAND ACQUISITION
Friday, 17 April 2015 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Addressing mediapersons here, Leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra said the State Government needs to start fresh land acquisition and pay rehab package as per the new Land Land Acquisition Policy, 2013 if it sincerely wants that the Lower Suktel irrigation project takes off.
“The lower Suktel irrigation project in Balangir district has remained incomplete thanks to apathy of the State Government. In view of the new Land Acquisition Policy of 2013, unless the Government starts fresh land acquisition work and gives compensation according to the new rules, the Suktel project cannot take off,” Mishra said.
All the proceedings in 29 villages of the Suktel project area have lapsed and the Government cannot do the work there without fresh proceedings, Mishra pointed out.
Mishra also quoted provisions of new land acquisition law to prove his point as to why its implementation is necessary. Mishra also lamented the absence of Balangir MP in the RPDAC meeting which was held after seven years in the district.
