Ranchi: The problem of land acquisition is becoming a hindrance in the expansion of Birsa Munda Airport. The villagers are protesting against this due to not receiving compensation. The displaced people of Birsa Munda Airport say that the district administration is trying to deceive the villagers. For this reason the displaced people are opposing it. The government had said to acquire 301.12 acres of land, whereas more than 373 acres of land has been acquired.
The displaced people said that out of the land that has been acquired, more than 70 percent of the displaced people have not even received compensation. The district administration had said that three decimals of land would be given to settle the displaced people. Whereas, the displaced are demanding to be given at least 20 decimal land. Apart from this, the area where the displaced people will be settled should fall within the Municipal Corporation. At the same time, the demand for providing jobs and employment to the displaced people in the airport and preserving religious places inside and outside the airport is also included.
In Gadhatoli, the district administration has given notice to 126 people and asked them to remove their houses. Whereas, more than 80 displaced people have not received compensation nor have they been resettled. Where will the displaced people go? There is protest for this.

After land acquisition, Gadhatoli will cease to exist. The government has not yet done anything for rehabilitation. Whereas, notice after notice is being sent. The government is talking about giving only three decimals. In such a situation, how will a family of four brothers survive?

After land acquisition, some people have received money and some have not. The district administration has taken 40 dismis land and till now the money has been received only for 10 dismis land.

The people whose land has been taken should get the prescribed compensation. At the same time, more land is being taken and the money paid has been reduced. The district administration wants to acquire the land by cordoning off the land without measuring it. The villagers are opposing this.
