If Land Acquisition Bill is anti-farmer, we will change it: PM Modi
New Delhi 15 December,2015 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that “if there is anything against farmers in the Land Acquisition Bill, the government is ready to change it”.
“Lot of discussion is going on the land acquisition issue. When the Act was made, we walked shoulder to shoulder with you,” PM told the opposition parties in the Lok Sabha.
Taking a swipe at the opposition, the PM said, “We knew you were hurrying passage of the bill for political gains, yet we stood with you.”
“In an era of co-operative federalism, can we become arrogant? Should we not listen to the chief ministers of the states,” the PM asked.
The PM was replying in the Lok Sabha on the motion of thanks to the President’s address to Parliament.
