Amid allegations of playing into the hands of corporate houses, Chief Minister Raghubar Das from the Floor of the House cancelled earlier notification for rates fixed by the Finance department for land acquisition and formed a high-level committee to be led by Chief Secretary, Rajiv Gauba.

The committee would comprise Additional Chief Secretary, UP Singh; Principal Secretary of Finance, Amit Khare and Secretary of Revenue and Land Reforms, KK Soan as other members.

As the Opposition blamed the State Government of shooing away farmers and land owners who will forfeit their land for industries, Das assured that the committee would take into account the views and opinions of those people.
