Not an inch of land will go to corporate houses under Land Acquisition, says Amit Shah

Land Acquisition

Under opposition attack over the Land Acquisition Bill, BJP President Amit Shah today asserted that not an inch of land will go to corporate houses and those acquired will be used for development of villages and for providing better irrigation to farmers.

He also sought to corner Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over the land owned by 12 sugar mills in the state, alleging that it has been handed over to his “friends” and “Ministers’ kin”.

“Despite the disinformation campaign launched by the opposition on the land bill that this is being brought for corporates, I want to tell the BJP workers that not an inch of land will go to corporate houses and this land will be used for development of villages and for providing water to farmers’ fields,” he said.

Virtually kickstarting the BJP poll campaign for Bihar elections later this year, the BJP chief, accompanied by Home Minister Rajnath Singh, asked the party workers to take this message to the farmers in every village to “dispel opposition propaganda” on the land bill.
