BJP to counter Congress ‘campaign’ on Land Bill

The Bharatiya Janata Party will take up an information campaign to counter the alleged “disinformation campaign” by the Congress about the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement (Amendment) Bill, 2015.

Addressing presspersons here recently, Kota Srinivasa Poojary, MLC, said that the Union government had brought in only five amendments to the land acquisition Act that the UPA II government adopted in 2014.

The amendments pertain to acquiring land for projects of national interest, for drinking water, for education, for rural infrastructure and to provide housing for poor, which were missing in the Act. Mr. Poojary said: “If Congress continues to portray the Bill as a major mistake of the Modi government, we will have no choice but to go to the people projecting our stand and clear the misinformation.”
