The Lucknow Development Authority had acquired land from 23 villages in several phases in between 19761987 for its the Mansarovar housing project at Kanpur Road. The construction activity started in 2016. Around 60 to 70 per cent of the project has been completed.
However, the farmers are demanding more compensation than what is presently being given to them. For the land, the farmers are paid the compensation at the rate of around ₹3 to ₹3.5 per sq feet. But now, they are demanding the compensation at the rate of ₹14 per sq feet. Under the banner of the Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) Awadh, farmers are staging the agitation against the development authority.
The farmers also contend that government job to one person per family was also promised, which has not been realised. The Bhartiya Kisan Union, under the banner of which the protests are being held, feels that the farmers have been cheated by the Government. There is no further updates on protests.
