Kullu: Fourlane Sangharsh Smiti (FSS) has again raised the issue about the government not doing anything regarding proper compensation for the people whose land is being used for the fourlane road project.
A meeting on the issue was held at circuit house at Kullu by FSS where anger against government was clear to see among the people for it’s lax attitude towards the victims.
Khushal Singh Thakur, President of FSS harshly condemned the government for being a mute spectator for people’s plight who had to lost their houses, cultivativable land and shops for the project. While talking to media, Thakur said, ”Whatever is going on today regarding fourlane project’s compensation system is totally against the land acquisition act 2013. People earlier were settled alongside national highway 21 given their valuable land believing in democracy but the way their demand for fair compensation money as per land acquisition act 2013 (providing four times rates to the honour of land) is continuously being ignored is enough to show the system.”
