Gadkari Assures Of Compensation And Employment If Land Bill Sees The Light Of The Day

Pushing for the proposed land bill among the farmers, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said once the bill becomes a law, there is likely to be more avenues for employment of the farming community and a  greater amount of compensation for farmers who lose their land. The passage of the bill is believed to pave the way for establishment of institutions like schools, colleges and hospitals. Farmers in the country are to gain profits from the enactment of the land bill. There is a provision of more compensation being granted to farmers involved.

 The  bill is to be introduced in the Rajya Sabha for discussion before approval. It saw itself safely through Lok Sabha because of the apparent majority enjoyed by the NDA, but the legislation is stuck in Rajya Sabha because of repeated opposition by opposition members who are in a majority in Rajya Sabha.

While Congress-led-UPA say the land ordinance is 'anti-farmer' because it fails to meet the requirements of the farming community, parliamentarians from BJP-led-NDA refuse to buy the contention.

Certain amendments were introduced to the legislation proposed in Parliament in 2013 by the erstwhile UPA government. These amendments allegedly tilt the proposed law in favour of industrialists. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is believed to be partisan when it comes to sponsoring industry. Farmers' rights are being encroached on, as per the UPA.

The UPA wants to keep up its image of being pro-farmer. This is why it has been opposing the amendments made to the land bill. Protest marches and rallies have been organised in this context.
