Mangaluru: Members of the Karnataka Rajya Raita Sangha, Hasiru Sene and the Aam Aadmi Party on Friday staged protest against the decision to amend Land Acquisition Act through an ordinance.

Addressing the protestors, here in the city Ravikiran Ponacha, executive president of the district unit of the Sangha, sought the withdrawal of land ordinance on the amendment of the Act. He said the ordinance favours the acquisition of land for industrialists against the will of the farmers. It’s against the democratic right of Indian citizens, he added.

“Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had not learnt any lesson from the debacle in Delhi Assembly poles. The Union government should withdraw the ordinance that will deny farmers of the land they cultivate. Farmers should not be neglected at the cost of development and industrialisation, he said”, Mr. Ponacha addded.

Progressive farmer and member of the Sangha Sunny D’Souza said the amendments brought in for the land acquisition act were similar to the laws formed during Narendra Modi’s tenure as Gujarat Chief Minister that led to acquisition of large tracts of land for industries. Mr. Modi was trying to bring such provisions through the proposed Act. “If they do not withdraw the ordinance, people have to show Gujarat Vapasi to Mr. Modi and (BJP president) Amit Shah,” he said.
