NDA govt dedicated to poor, farmers: BJP President Amit Shah 31.8.2015 DNA: Recent Columns
Hailing the Centre's decision to bring 13 laws under the Land Acquisition Act, BJP on Sunday called it a "pro-farmer" measure and insisted that its government will work to get the proposed land Bill passed in Parliament. Calling the land law passed by the previous UPA regime "full of errors", BJP President Amit Shah said that almost all state governments are against it. He added that the ordinance brought in by the Modi government dealt with these issues but opposition parties "misled and scared" the farmers with respect to the proposed changes in the law. In an apparent attack on Congress and Left, he said that some political parties are doing politics over the issue and it will be BJP's attempt to have the NDA Bill passed in Parliament after developing a consensus on its measures. Referring to the government's decision of bringing 13 laws under the Act, Shah said, "This is a step taken for the welfare of farmers and I thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for this. The NDA government is dedicated to the ...

PM Modi's decision to not re-promulgate land ordinance is for farmers' welfare: Arun Jaitley 30.8.2015 DNA: Recent Columns
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's decision to not re-promulgate the land ordinance had been taken so that the farmers would not have to face heavy financial losses. "Even though the ordinance is lapsing, the 13 exempted laws, which were meant to provide direct financial benefit to the farmers, are being brought under the rules effective from today so that the farmers do not face financial losses," Jaitley said. The Centre had earlier issued an order to include 13 Central acts like the National Highway and Railways Acts in the Land Law to extend benefits to those whose land is acquired. "Parliament has not been prorogued as yet. Therefore it is necessary before August 31, that the compensation programme, relief and rehabilitation programme of the 2013 laws be made exempted to the 13 exempted acts. This is what the government has done and it is entirely in the interest of the farmers," he added. Talking further on reforms on land laws, he said, "the present ...

Congress has been exposed on Land Bill, says Union Minister Nitin Gadkari 30.8.2015 DNA: Wide Angle
Union Minister for Transport and Shipping Nitin Gadkari said at Nagpur on Sunday that the Congress has been exposed for its "double standard" on the Land Aquisition Bill and for taking an "anti-farmer" stand.  On Sunday morning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his 'Man ki Baat' radio speech that the government will not re-promulgate the Ordinance on Land Acquisition, allowing it to expire on Monday. Modi said that the Congress not only opposed the bill, but also showed that it is against farmers' interests, Gadkari said at a press conference at Nagpur on Sunday evening.  Gadkari, who has advocated the Land Bill during several media interactions across the country, said that the government has declared its readiness to incorporate any suggestion in the bill to benefit farmers. However, since the ordinance is being allowed to lapse tomorrow, the government has notified rules which will come into effect from today to address this "incomplete work," he said. He said that since it is on the concurrent ...

PM Modi's land ordinance decision at Niti Aayog's behest: Maharashtra CM Fadnavis 30.8.2015 DNA: Wide Angle
After Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the government will not re-promulgate the controversial Land Acquisition ordinance which expires on Monday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said in Mumbai on Sunday that decision was taken at the NITI Ayog's request. "At a recent NITI Aayog meeting, most chief ministers had demanded that due to the stalemate in Parliament over the Land Bill, critical infrastructure projects of states are getting delayed and so the Centre should empower states to enact their own land acquisition models," Fadnavis told PTI. "We are happy that Modi has accepted our request and decided that instead of re-promulgating the ordinance, states will be empowered to frame their own models," he said. Fadnavis said that the Maharashtra government has already decided to give highest compensation to farmers as compared to other states. "This decision will expedite rural and urban infrastructure projects," he said. In May, the Maharashtra government had decided to give four ...
