82 out of 124 households in vegetable garden agree to move

Ward 6 in HCMC’s Tan Binh District has contacted 85 out of 124 households in controversial vegetable garden, which has recently been cleared for a public school complex construction, and reached consensus of 82 households, reported chairman of the ward People’s Committee Chau Van La.
According to Mr. La, three out of the 85 contacted households have disagreed with the site clearance for the project.
Of the 85 households, 70 had enumerated information about their land use and residence situation at the end of January 22.
So far, the ward has gave 26 households, cultivating vegetable over nearly 6,600 square meters in the area for many years, the total amount of VND28.8 billion in financial assistance in the first payment phase. The second phase will come after Tet Holiday.
In addition, the ward has provided VND110 million in cash bonus to 22 households and delivered Tet presents to 26 households with each present comprising VND6 million in cash and a gift worth VND1 million.
Statistics by authorized agencies show that 124 households had farmed in the vegetable garden measuring 4.8 hectares.
Among those who have received the financial assistance, some used to lodge complaints demanding land use right certificate granting to the land plots where they had farmed.
Now they realized that the demand is not right because the area comes under the state management so they had stopped complaining, registered to receive the assistance and agreed to move.
Specially, one family has flesh-and-blood relation with a person, farming in the vegetable garden, directly lodging complaints and inducing others to do so.
The family has agreed with enumerating and received financial support in the afternoon on January 22. Its members said that they would call on the relatives who have been opposing building the school complex in the vegetable garden.
Mr. Chau Van La said that Tan Binh district would continue meeting the disagreed 39 families in the upcoming time to convince them to move for the project building, paying financial aid to the dwellers and working until the 29th day of the last month in the lunar calendar to make the payment.
