Villagers of Naharup, Satang Kuki and Utonglok Koireng affected by Dolaithabi Barrage project today said that they were cheated by IFCD Department, Government of Manipur by not providing the compensation for their standing properties. Speaking to media persons in a press meet today at Manipur Press Club, Kalam Koireng, Chairman of Joint action Committee Dolaithabi Barrage Project said, Manipur Government acquired a total land of 70.70 acres. Land compensation has been paid but the compensation for the standing properties have never been provided till today. He said according to government notification on 1997 the people were asked to claim their property compensation within 3 months, however the notification had never reached the villagers. Recently an executive engineer of the department came and said that as the villagers had not claimed the compensation for the standing property within the three months they are not going to pay the compensation.
