Lucknow (Agency): Accusing the Mayawati government of not complying with the agreement between farmers and district administration in Allabahad, Congress and SP legislators on Monday staged walkouts from the Uttar Pradesh Assembly.

The matter was raised in the 'zero hour' through an adjournment notice by Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Pramod Tiwari, who said that an agreement was reached between the district administration and farmers after a clash on January 21 in Karchana (Allahabad).

"The agreement is not followed at all... The farmers should get the due compensation and one Gulab Vishwakarma who was killed in the police firing should also be given due compensation," Tiwari demanded and sought to know the status of agreement signed by the then Allahabad district magistrate.

On February 5, similar incident took place in Bara (Allahabad) demanding that those displaced should be rehabilitated and given due compensation, he said.

In his reply, state Parliamentary Affairs Minister Lalji Verma said that in Karchana of the total 515 hectare land acquired for the power project, compensation of 500 hectares had been disbursed to farmers and the money of remaining 15 hectare was not taken by them.

"The farmers are paid 1.5 to two times more than the existing circle rate of the area. The compensation was given on January 2009 rates, when the project kick-started. The compensation was given as by the rehabilitation policy of the Centre," he said.

About Vishwakarma who was killed on January 21 agitation, Verma denied the allegations and said that he was ill and died when he was stuck in traffic jam caused due to agitation while being taken to the hospital.

Over 500 persons destroyed vehicles and other establishment at JP Group's Bara power plant and an FIR in this regard had been registered in Shankargarh police station, Verma said.

Unsatisfied with the answer, the SP members staged a walk out raising slogans against the "corrupt" BSP government. Later, Congress faction led by Tiwari too staged a walkout stating that he was not getting the answer about the status of agreement between farmers and local administration.
