Swallow The Bitter Pill Of Land Bill To Usher In Development

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar staged a 24-hour fast to protest against the clauses of the land bill they dubbed to be anti-farmer. He was joined by several other senior members of the state JD(U).

Senior JD(U) leader Vijay Kumar Choudhary complimented the 2013 form of the legislation which had adequate provisions for consent from the farming community before any acquisition of land could be made. Moreover, there was a provision for compensation affected farmers in a just manner. The 2013 form of the Act had been changed to suit the corporate lobby at the cost of welfare of the farming community.
The bill has left even those in the government unhappy. Union rural development minister Chaudhary Birender Singh said he could not sleep a wink for many nights before he tabled the Land Bill before the Lok Sabha in the last week of February.

The former Congress veteran said he was stuck with the BJP's ideology. Though he himself was not in favour of the bill, yet he could not do anything but toe the party line in introducing the bill. But he felt confident the amendments would certainly make the bill more digestible.

Singh expressed all solidarity with farmers, reiterating his sympathy with their inability to fulfill their basic needs. He felt sure farmers' interests would not be overlooked in the plans and schemes made by the Union government led by PM Narendra Modi.

The ruling NDA is of the firm opinion the reforms that implementing the bill would bring into the country are the need of the hour.
