Farmer body protests against new airport at Shivdaspura

Jaipur: Affected farmers of the proposed Greenfield airport have once again demanded the state government to lift the ban as buildings, houses and plots situated on the land reserved at Shivdaspura cannot be regularized. The land owners, under the banner of Greenfield airport Hatao Kisan Sangarsh Samiti, gave their representation to chief minister Ashok Gehlot demanding to lift the ban.

The memorandum reads, in 2005-2006, following the direction of the then chief minister, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA), reserved 4,651 bigah land in eight villages. “It was completely illegal as there is no provision in the law to reserve land,” said a farmer.

In master plan 2025, land in these eight villages has been earmarked as a special area. The land use of these eight villages will be decided on the direction of the state government. The move is causing huge inconvenience to the farmers. Prahlad Meena, a member of the delegation, said, “For the past many years, the district lease committee (DLC) rates of the area have not increased, as the land is reserved for the airport. Moreover, development is stalled as land holders are left in lurch. In Lok Sabha, civil aviation minister had replied that no airport was proposed in Shivdaspura. Still, the land was kept reserved.”
