Maharashtra govt. forcibly acquiring land for Samruddhi expressway, claims Opposition
The Congress and NCP on Tuesday accused the State government of forcible land acquisition for its ambitious Samruddhi expressway project.
Congress and NCP MLCs listed a question during question hour in the Legislative Council over the alleged betrayal of farmers during land acquisition.
In a written reply to the question, State Public Works (Public Undertaking) Minister Eknath Shinde denied any forcible acquisition, and said the land was being acquired after proper negotiations with farmers.
