Govindacharya, Hazare outfit oppose Land Bill

Former BJP ideologue Govindacharya and Anna Hazare's organisation on Tuesday joined various NGOs and farmers bodies in opposing changes in the land bill and questioned the "haste" in doing so through ordinances.

They alleged that changes will "damage" farmers and are aimed at "furthering the interests of capitalists", which will negatively impact foodgrain production in the country. Alleging that the government appeared "hell-bent on changing provisions made in favour of the exploited and the deprived," Govindacharya told the panel examining the contentious land bill 2015, that the government promulgating an ordinance thrice on the matter has sent a message that it was being done to further the interests of capitalists at the cost of farmers.
