They said that section 4 was issued on August 27, 2004, followed by notification of section 6 on August 25, 2005. Some people went to the court and due to stay order on some land; 688 acre land was left for the acquisition. Land Acquisition Collector (LAC) was engaged in the process of land acquisition and as per the due process, the award was to be announced in two years. In a letter, the Collector asked the HSIDC to pay the amount so that the farmers could be paid compensation. HSIDC had deposited Rs. 50 crore on August 16, 2007 with the LAC.

INLD leaders said that as soon as the award was to be announced, Hooda government asked the LAC to withdraw the whole land acquisition process and stopped the three year long process in a single stroke. “In fact, during that period some big private colonizers had purchased the whole lands in conspiracy with the highly placed government functionaries and some had even applied for the Change of Land Use (CLU)”, INLD leaders said.

Fearing the land acquisition, the farmers sold their lands to the private colonizers at prices far below the market rates. Out of it, 200 acre land was purchased by a single land colonizer at the peltry rate of Rs. 2.35 crore per acre. INLD leaders asked the government to come out with a white paper about the land owners at the time of notifying section 4 & section 6 and at the time of announcement of release order.

INLD leaders asked the government why additional 3718 acre land is being acquired, if the land is not required and if the additional land was required than why the 688 acre land was released after the whole acquisition process had completed as the additional land is also being acquired for the purpose of IMT Manesar.

INLD has asked the restoration of 688 acre Manesar lands to their rightful original owners at the time of notification of section 4 notice. INLD leader Prof. Singh said that earlier also the government has given 1500 acre of HSIDC land to Reliance, which was acquired by HSIDC and committed scam of Rs. one lakh crores.
