Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visited Greater Noida for the Moto GP Bharat event and met with a group of 21 farmers. These farmers expressed their gratitude for a decision that they feel greatly improved their lives and livelihoods.

The farmers were thrilled and wanted to personally thank Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. He had allowed them to seek compensation and rehabilitation benefits for government-owned land they had been using for 45 years. This land was initially acquired for the Noida International Greenfield Airport at Jewar, and previously, officials had denied compensation, claiming government ownership.

Protests and disruptions by farmers in Jewar caused delays in the construction of the airport's boundary wall, initially planned for completion by the end of 2024. Due to the agitation, a 2-kilometer section of the wall remained unfinished, leading to safety and security concerns.

However, on August 1, 2023, the Uttar Pradesh cabinet approved a policy allowing compensation for farmers when their "Shor" land (government land for natural water bodies and forests) was acquired for public projects. This decision, pushed for by Jewar MLA Dhirendra Singh, brought relief to the farmers. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath recognized the positive impact this had on hundreds of farmers owning 14 hectares of land, which had been a hindrance to the airport project.

During a meeting at Gautam Buddha University's guesthouse, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath reaffirmed the government's commitment to farmers and those in need. Farmers from various areas expressed their gratitude to the CM. One farmer, Meghraj Jatav, who had lost his land to an airport project, thanked Chief Minister Yogi for a decision that brought happiness to their lives.

The text discusses how the administration of Gautam Budh Nagar, in collaboration with NIAL, initiated the process of compensating farmers who had been using government land for the construction of a boundary wall. This compensation was granted after 45 years of land usage and is seen as a significant help for farmers, as exemplified by Ramprasad, who was unable to finance his daughters' weddings until this support was provided.

Jewar MLA Dhirendra Singh praised the decision, stating that it not only benefits airport farmers but also aids other farmers whose land is acquired for government projects across the state, particularly those who mistakenly had possession of government land many years ago.
