Farmers' rally on March 7

delhi Updated: Mar 05, 2011 00:22 IST

The state government has told authorities that farmers should at no cost be allowed to disrupt normal life during their announced agitation on March 7. Hundreds of farmers have threatened a 'chakka jam' from Greater Noida to Agra to protest land acquisition for construction of a toll highway - Yamuna Expressway - between the two cities.

Farmers have been agitating at Bhatta Parsaul in Greater Noida since mid-January, protesting the land acquisition policies of the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority.

Meerut commissioner Bhuvnesh Kumar, under whose jurisdiction Noida falls, has held a meeting with top police and administrative officials in the wake of the agitation.
