Bullet Train: The High Court dismisses all farmers' petitions in this regard

Gujarat High Court has given verdict on Narendra Modi's ambitious project Bullet Train.
The Gujarat High Court has given this judgment in respect of a petition filed by the farmers for land acquisition and rejected all the petitions of the farmers.
A bench of Justices Anant Dave and Justice Biren Vaishnav passed the verdict.
Farmers 'lawyer Anand Yagnik told the High Court had rejected 123 farmers' petitions.
The Gujarat High Court said that they have the right to make any changes to the Land Acquisition Act.
The issue of farmers' compensation is still open by the High Court but the government has justified the compensation paid.
The High Court said that if the farmers are not satisfied with the present compensation, they can make a representation based on the compensation paid to the farmers in the past in the construction of highway and express highway in the state.
The High Court also rejected the issue of social impact assessment of the project. The High Court said that this has not happened but according to Zika's guideline, the survey has been fair.
Farmer advocate Anand Yagnik expressed disappointment over the verdict and said that after reading the verdict, we will decide the next strategy. The path to the Supreme Court is open and there will be a fight at the ground level.
The Gujarat High Court has given a verdict on land acquisition and has given a green flag to move the project forward.
Justice a S. The Dave-led bench had just completed the hearing in January and adjourned the verdict.
Farmers from Maharashtra, including Gujarat, are also protesting against the bullet train running from Ahmedabad to Mumbai.

In this regard, 1,000 farmers have applied together in the High Court. 123 petitions were filed in the High Court.

Why oppose farmers?

Farmers are protesting against the compensation being received for land acquisition.
Farmers are demanding more compensation than the state government pays for the land.
Farmers demand that the compensation of the land not be taken into account with the current market price based on the price of the janitor set in 2011.
The farmers who are going to land in the Bullet Train project say that the land should not be repaid according to the Central Government Land Acquisition Act or the Gujarat Government as amended.
One important thing in protesting farmers is that they are opposing changes in the land acquisition law by the Gujarat government.
Farmer's lawyer Anand Yagnik, speaking to "The conditions of rehabilitation and restoration in the original law had been blown away by the Gujarat government."
"Similarly, the sanction of the village which was so essential before the implementation of any project under this Act has also violated the condition."
Regarding other important issues, he said, "No social impact assessment has been made by the government on how such projects will affect the society, whether it benefits them, or disadvantages, as per the law."
In this regard, 1,000 farmers filed an affidavit in the High Court, saying they did not consent to the acquisition of land.
