Decision to seek return of compensation in contravention of SC directions: Surjewala
CHANDIGARH : Condemning the decision of BJP government in Haryana to levy 9% interest on the return of land compensation amount to be paid by farmers for chunks acquired for Dadupur Nalvi Irrigation Scheme, former minister Randeep Singh Surjewala said the decision of Manohar Lal Khattar’s government to seek return of compensation money was in contravention of the Supreme Court’s directions.

In a statement, Surjewala said the Supreme Court had decided in the Tata Singur case that farmers who took compensation money for the acquisition of their land need not return it as they have been deprived of the occupation and enjoyment of their land for the last ten years and the same conditions were applicable in case of affected farmers in Dadupur Nalvi irrigation project.

“The Haryana government's recent decision stands in total contravention of the apex court’s decision,” he said.

The Congress minister said the de-notification of irrigation scheme was a grave injustice, betrayal and deception with the farmers of north Haryana.

He said justice would be done to the affected farmers on the formation of Congress government in the state after assembly elections.

The Congress leader said that decision of Khattar government to ask affected farmers to return the compensation amount along with the interest will deal multiple blows to farmers who are already facing acute hardships due to anti-farmer policies of the state and central government.

“The farmers of northern Haryana are already facing a bleak future on account of depleting water table and scrapping of Dadupur Nalvi canal project. And now they are being coerced to pay back the received compensation with interest,” he said
