No payment for land acquisition, farmers angry

Mysuru, July 26:- Farmers who lost their land due to the acquisition have not received any compensation from the government because of officials and middlemen. The farmers who are left in the lurch want to end their lives.

It is alleged that the middlemen are not following the instructions given by the DC.  They are giving compensation to those whom they want to give. It is said that the farmers have to bribe the middleman to get their rightful compensation. Lands have been acquired from the farmers for the work of Varuna Canal. The deputy commissioner had instructed to provide them the compensation based on 11E map. Farmers are waiting for the compensation for 10 years. The officials are directly asking the farmers to give them a bribe. Farmers have warned that if they do not get compensation, they will commit suicide in front of the office of the officials asking for a bribe. (MR/KS).
