Aurangabad (Bihar), May 8 (PTI) Construction work for the proposed 1980 MW thermal power plant at Nabinagar in Bihar’s Aurangabad district began today following resolution of the compensation-related issues of local farmers, official sources said.The demand for adequate compensation by the farmers for their land acquisition for the proposed power plant being constructed in a joint venture by the NTPC’s subsidiary unit Nabinagar Power Generation Company Ltd and the state government has been finally resolved after over a four-and-a-half month deadlock, the sources said.All the parties, comprising farmers, district administration and the construction company, mutually resolved the issues during three stages of dialogue held among them to sort out compensation-related issues, they said.Following the resolution of the farmers’ demand for compensation, the construction company has started the levelling of the acquired land for construction of the proposed thermal power project, the sources added.The farmers had launched a violent agitation during which they had stoned a speeding train and clashed with the police early this year alleging inadequate compensation in lieu of their land acquisition.
