Gandhidham Chamber to hold ‘Jan Aakrosh Rally’ seeking freehold of Kandla Port Trust land

Gandhidham: The Gandhidham Chamber of Commerce and Industry, along with many other trade organizations and various social organizations of Kutch Gandhidham region, will be holding a massive ‘Jan Akrosh Rally’ to protest against the Deendayal Port Trust (formerly known as Kandla Port Trust), demanding the conversion of lease to freehold land of Gandhidham and Addipur township, on Friday December 7, 2018 in at Gandhidham (Kutch).

With nearly 25,000 people anticipated to attend the rally, the protest is expected to impact severely the concerned authorities. The rally will bring to the fore issues faced by common citizens of the township.

The demand has been pending since over five decades now. In 2014, the UPA cabinet had approved the conversion of 1900 acre out of the 5000-acre residential lease land with the DPT into freehold land.
