Jugal seeks compensation for agricultural land of border people

BJP MP Jugal Kishore Sharma raising issues of Jammu in the Parliament

NEW DELHI: Jugal Kishore Sharma, Member of Parliament, Jammu-Poonch Lok Sabha Constituency, today raised the issue of payment of compensation of agricultural land beyond the fencing point belonging to border people in the Lok Sabha.
Jugal Kishore complimented Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh for fulfilling the demand of people of border areas. Jugal said that the land of people residing at the border areas starting from Samba-Kathua to Rajouri-Poonch had been taken under fencing point. This was the only source of their livelihood for the border people.
“The land beyond the fencing point remains uncultivated with the result it changed into barren land and forest. Farmers living in the border areas are now leading difficult life with no other land to cultivate”, Jugal said and urged the Centre Government that compensation should be paid to the farmers at the earliest for the land beyond the fencing point.
