New Delhi, Nov 18 (UNI) The BJP today assured Rs two crore per acre compensation to farmers in lieu of land acquired for projects and promised to take steps to identify and evict the illegal Bangladeshi migrants living in the capital.
Prof V K Malhotra, BJP's Chief Ministerial candidate in Delhi, while releasing the party manifesto, said, acquisition of farmers' land will be discouraged. ''If necessary, the builders will have to pay Rs two crore per acre as compensation to farmers,'' he said.
Accusing the Sheila Dikshit government of indulging in vote-bank politics on the Bangladeshi issue, he said there are about four lakh Bangladeshis staying illegally.
''Even the Election Commission has identified and detected 35,317 of them in Delhi, but they have all been issued ration cards and voter IDs. Only 200 names have been deleted.'' The Congress was trying to make electoral gains by granting them legal documents, he alleged and said his party would work for their eviction.
