New Delhi: After coming under fire from the opposition over the Land Acquisition Amendment Bill, the Bharatiya Janata Party Parliamentary Party will meet on Tuesday ahead of Parliament session to fine tune its strategy.
An aggressive Congress Vice President Rahul's single-handedly took on the Narendra Modi government in the Lok Sabha on Monday. "The government is ignoring the plight of farmers and is not paying heed to the condition of labourers. Farmers are not getting credits in NDA's rule. The government is weakening the farmers and will then strike them down with this ordinance," Rahul said.
The Centre hit back saying at Rahul that it was the Congress that looted from the farmers and is now politicising the issue.
Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh said, "Congress looted from Haryana farmers and extracted revenues. Congress is trying to show sympathy towards farmers, who are taking it as a joke."
After Rahul spearheaded the party's fight against the Land Bill, the Congress remains adamant on not budging from the issue.
Senior Congress MP Mallikarjun Kharge said, "We want Land Bill to be referred to Parliamentary Standing Committee. BJP taking the ordinance route on Land Bill is an insult to democracy."
