Dalit farmers of Dhanala village of Dhandhuka taluka have accused the state government of grabbing their agricultural land. Around 300 people will submit their representation to the district collector of Ahmedabad on Tuesday.

According to the statement issued by the farmers, the state government in 1953 had allotted 536.62 acres land to 35 scheduled caste families of Dhanala village for their livelihood. However, the deputy collector of Dholka forcibly filled up the fake possession rights from the farmers.

Moreover, the deputy collector issued a new order on December 21, 2010 which reduced their land from 15 acres to just 3 acres.

The officials of revenue department forged a fake order dated April 30, 1963 stating that the land was acquired by getting approvals of the owners at that time. The farmers in their statement also stated that four of the farmers who had claimed to give their consent, had died before 1963.

The farmers have filed 24 petitions in the High Court that ordered the district collector of Ahmedabad for detailed inquiry into the order.
