It was assured from the top officials that their problems would be heard soon. In this regard, a meeting of farmers was held at the District Collectorate office on Tuesday with the CEOs of Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Authority, besides the Police Commissioner and District Magistrate.

Bharatiya Kisan Parishad President Sukhbir Khalifa said that the meeting with senior officers of the district lasted for about three hours. We have presented our side to the administration officials in the meeting. There should be a solution to the demands of the farmers, otherwise the farmers are free to take their own decisions. The strike will continue at Noida Authority, Greater Noida Authority and Noida NTPC. If the High Power Committee is not formed in the next 150 hours, the movement will be intensified.

He said that Delhi is not far. This time around 10 thousand people of the United Kisan Morcha of the district will march to Delhi after February 18. Sukhbir Khalifa said that farmers are demanding increased compensation, employment to local people, 10 percent plot and complete solution to the population problem. Farmers are angry with the public representatives as well as the district administration officials. They too are not taking their demands to the top.

He said that we have given a lot of time to NTPC and Noida Authority. But, till now only paper work is being done regarding our demands. Therefore, now the movement will be forced to intensify further.
