BJP-JJP govt. has taken another decision to hand over the lands of farmers to its capitalist friends

Chandigarh, (Aditi) – President, Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee, Kumari Selja said that the BJP-JJP government of Haryana has taken another decision to hand over the lands of farmers to its capitalist friends. This government is ready to go to any extent to destroy the farmers to benefit its capitalist friends. The BJP-JJP government has written another new chapter to ruin the farmers by making amendment in the land acquisition law passed by the UPA government. With this decision of the government, now land can be acquired even for PPP mode projects without the consent of the farmers. Through this amendment, the government has made preparations to grab land of the state, she added.

Kumari Selja said that farmers are not getting the right price for their crops. They are under debt and continuously committing suicides, but the government choose to remain a mute spectator. To ruin the farmers, the BJP government at the center had passed three anti-agriculture black laws and now, following the footsteps of the central government, the BJP-JJP government of Haryana has decided to destroy the farmers through this amendment in the Haryana assembly. This is part of a conspiracy by the BJP to benefit its capitalist friends. The farmers have been sitting on agitation for the last nine months against the black anti-agriculture laws, but instead of taking care of the farmers, the government is bringing black laws. Such steps of the government cannot be tolerated at any cost, said Kumari Selja.

She said that earlier consent of 70 percent farmers was necessary for land acquisition for projects to be carried out under PPP mode, but now no consent will be taken from farmers for land acquisition. What greater atrocity will happen with the farmers that their land will be taken away without their consent? With this amendment, the power of the collector will enhance and the government will be able to do whatever it wants to do against the farmers. The more harmful thing for the farmers is that now the social impact and agricultural production from the land will not be evaluated while acquiring the land.

Kumari Selja said that the provision of not issuing any notice is also very dangerous. With this provision, it will not be known whether the acquisition of land has been done with the consent of the farmer or not, because when no notice will be issued then how will the investigation be done? The farmer could be removed immediately from the land. Where will the farmer go? The land can be vacated even at midnight.

Kumari Selja said that in 2013, the Congress government did the work of empowering the farmers, but today the BJP government is continuously working to weaken the farmers with its decisions and laws.

Kumari Selja said that recently the central government has announced to sell government properties to private companies. In this series, the Haryana government has also taken this decision. Now, the Haryana government has made preparations to hand over land of the farmers to private companies without their consent. Be it the central government or the Haryana government, both have the same objective to benefit their selected capitalist friends at any cost.

Kumari Selja said that under the leadership of Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, Haryana Congress is standing firmly with the farmers. This conspiracy of BJP-JJP government to benefit its friends will not be allowed to succeed. Haryana Congress will strongly oppose this black law, added Kumari Selja.
