GURGAON: Farmers in this Haryana district bordering Delhi on Tuesday asked the government to return the hundreds of acres of land taken from them as it had not been put to any use.

The panchayats of five villages on Tuesday met central Minister of State for Planning and Defence Rao Inderjeet Singh and made the demand.

Hundreds of acres of agriculture land were acquired a decade ago from Khandsa, Garoli, Mohammadpur, Harsaru and Narsighpur villages to establish a special economic zone.

The farmers complained that since nothing has been done on their land for the last 10 years, the land should be returned to them.

Rao Inderjeet Singh promised to take up the issue with Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar. He said he would press Khattar to return the land to the owners.
