Mamata’s firm no to land acquisition act

She said that her government will not implement the proposed amendments in the Land Acquisition Act being brought about by the Narendra Modi government at the Centre. The Trinamool Congress supremo urged people to burn the “black ordinance” that was approved by the Modi cabinet to amend the Land Acquisition Act in order to remove “procedural difficulties” in acquiring land for national projects.

“The Centre is amending the Land Acquisition Act which will allow them to snatch away your land at gun point. So long as I am alive I will never allow any forcible acquisition of land. They will have to acquire land only on my dead body,” said Banerjee, addressing a public meeting in Kharagpur.  

Banerjee, who fought for distraught farmers from Singur protesting against forcible land acquisition that eventually catapulted her to power in West Bengal in 2011, asked her party workers to hit the streets and protest against the Ordinance.
