Communist Party Opposes Land Acquisition Bill
21st Party Congress of Communist Party of India (CPI-Marxist)
The 21st Party Congress of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) condemns the amendments to the Right to Fair Compensation, Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013.
The party said that the amendments proposed by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government are pro-corporate and anti-farmer.
The government is trying to push through Parliament by using its single-party majority status in the Lok Sabha. It has failed to push the Bill through the Rajya Sabha because of the united stand of most opposition parties, said CPI(M).

The Congress party has also decided to intensify its opposition to the Land Acquisition Bill proposed by Modi-led BJP. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who had been vacationing for the past two months, is back in Delhi and is expected to lead a rally of farmers in New Delhi on April 19.
Meanwhile, Congress has released the content for a multimedia campaign to promote the upcoming show in Delhi.

The 21st Congress of the CPI(M) calls upon its units to mobilise people against the Land Acquisition Amendment Bill. The CPI(M) said it will resist any attempts at unjust land acquisition and land grab.
The Party will build the broadest possible unity against such moves and will intensify efforts to ensure that land is distributed to the landless, said the party.
