Protesting against the upcoming airport at Kishangarh town, the people of Rathodon Ki Dhaani village today appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to displace them in the name of development. In a unique protest, villagers sat on the road with their cattle bearing plates that read, ‘do the justice PM sahab, don’t kill us for the sake of development’. They said their families have been living in the village for more than 500 years and despite their continuous protest their land is being taken away for the airport.
