They have refused to accept the compensation and handover the lands to the HSIIDC.

"The acquisition should be cancelled immediately like it was done in Rewari. They are paying us at 10 year old rates while we all know that land rates are skyrocketing. This is our sole way of earning and can't give it for peanuts. We will continue protests till a complete rollback is announced," said one of the protesters.
