On 10th Oct,2017 hundreds of farmers protested against the Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) for failing to fulfill its commitment after it acquired land in villages nine years ago near Rahiad village on BharuchDahej road. They blocked the BharuchDahej road, disrupting road traffic for several hours. Farmers demanded employment for those who lost their land when GIDC was set up by the government. They also demanded better business opportunities for locals.The farmers were sent back but no action has been taken. The protest lasted only for a day but villagers are planning another soon considering elections in Gujarat. Normal traffic resumed on the BharuchDahej after over five hours.
