Buldhana, Maharashtra| Vinod Wankhede
In Wadi budruk village, Buldhana district, Maharashtra farming land which belongs to communities belonging to backward classes is being acquired by the government for the development of a sports complex. Residents have written to the authorities opposing the project over and over again. However their appeals have not been heard. The occupants of this land are mostly farmers and stand the risk of losing their livelihoods if the government goes ahead with the project. They have been cultivating this land for 30-35 years, however, they have not received receipts for land pattas from the teshildar. “ Is it fair to clamp down on the homes and livelihoods of the poor to make sports complexes for the children of the rich?” asks one resident
