RLD workers hold protest at toll plazas

Press Trust of India  |  Mathura 

RLD activists held demonstrations at three toll plazas on Yamuna Expressway in support of farmers whose land was acquired by the government.

They held the protest last evening for over two hours and party district chief Ramveer Singh Bharangar warned that they would hold a huge dharna if their demands are not

The protestors were demanding free toll for farmers of the area, return of 10 per cent of acquired land to farmers, payment of compensation to them and a job for one member of the farmer's family whose land has been acquired.

Collection of toll at Mant was suspended during the agitation but the movement of the traffic remained unaffected.

They also presented a charter of demands to SDM Sadanand Gupta who will forward it to the Chief Minister.
