Baliapal: Ahead of the Rs 5,000-crore proposed port at Choumukh across Subarnarekha under Baliapal block in Balasore district, hundreds of acres of farmland are being acquired for a railway project to connect the port from Amarda road.
Meanwhile, farmers, demanding appropriate compensation for their land, held a meeting at Srirampur Tuesday. Presided over by Narayana Prasad Sahu, president of Baliapal Barista Nagarika Parishad, the meeting deliberated upon issues related to compensation for the project oustees.
Farmers along with intellectuals discussed various issues related to farmers who will lose their land for the port
and the railway project.
They said the government should pay five times the price initially fixed for an acre. They said there should be equal compensation for the left out land (the part of land parcel) also.
“The government should specially consider the price of the land close to the roads. Compensation for the trees in farmland would be fixed and paid to the owners,” they observed.
The farmers also said that the company executing the projects should provide jobs to each of the land-losing families, apart from annual royalty.
It was decided at the meeting that a delegation of farmers will take up these issues with the collector, Parliament member and local MLAs.
Notably, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had laid the foundation for the port well before the general elections.
Survey for land acquisition for the railway project has been completed. The Railway Ministry had given approval to the DPR of the railway project.
The Commerce and Transport Department has also approved the DPR July 15, 2019.
It is said that the company which will execute the project has started preliminary work of land acquisition. Officials meet farmers who are to spare their land for the projects.
Farmers said that as some outfits had earlier opposed the port project, the administration should take them into confidence before starting land acquisition.

Resentment is brewing among the people of Balasore district over alleged apathy of South Eastern Railway towards Amarda railway station.
BALASORE: Resentment is brewing among the people of Balasore district over alleged apathy of South Eastern Railway towards Amarda railway station. Built before Independence, the station, which is the lifeline for commuters of several areas in Balasore and Mayurbhanj districts, lacks basic facilities.
Weeds and creepers have taken over a major part of the platform which poses problems for senior citizens due to its low height. The station has no lighting facility, toilets
for women, reservation counter and rest rooms. It also lacks an entrance gate.
Though it generates a revenue of `4 lakh every month, the authorities concerned have turned a blind eye to the development of the station. In the absence of proper connectivity, transportation of goods too has taken a hit.
The station also holds importance for tourists as it is close to Mayurbhanj border, a State Highway, National Highway and Amarda airstrip at Rashgobindpur. Apart from it, the station in the district under Kharagpur division of South Eastern Railway is also a vital cargo hub.
Locals have demanded a halt of East Coast Express which connects Kolkata with Hyderabad and Salimar-Baripada Express trains at the station as these are busy routes.
Protesting the negligence and demanding better facilities, several organisations have threatened to stage an agitation. “A rail roko will be staged on August 17,” warned local leaders like former MLA Debi Prasanna Chand, former Sarpanch Pradip Kumar Behera, Ramesh Das, Rajkishore Mohanty and Debjit Ghose.
Organisations like Anchalika Bikash Manch, Friends and Cultural Association and some NGOs have submitted memorandum to the railway authorities over their demands but nothing has been done so far.Leaders of the organisations said Kharagpur Divisional Railway Manager and Balasore MP have been apprised of the rail roko threat.
Ramchandra Roul, president of Anchalika Bikash Manch said Amarda Road is a commercial hub of Balasore and some parts of Mayurbhanj district in North Odisha. The development of the railway station will provide a  boost for business and usher in more prosperity, the leaders cited.
Station Manager Dibakar Mohanty said higher authorities have been apprised of the basic needs of the railway station.
