The farmers put forth their 14 demands before the government yesterday on which detailed discussions were held.
Over the demand for hike in compensation for the land acquired under the project, the ministers said since compensation has been given under contract rules, therefore additional compensation is not possible, but the concerning company which has acquired the land will give the assistance amount.
