New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Kamal Nath Tuesday said the party was ready to have discussions on the controversial Land Acquisition Bill but would oppose it tooth and nail if it is brought on the floor of the House.

"If they would like to have a discussion, we are open to have that with them. We can find ways and means to go around it. But if they bring it on the floor of the House, we will have to oppose it tooth and nail," Nath, who was a former union minister, told reporters outside Parliament House here.

He said the new amendments would shake the foundation of the Land Bill which the Congress had brought in the past.

"The Land Acquisition Ordinance is going to be opposed by us strongly. There are some serious issues... It shakes the foundation of the Bill that we had introduced. Under no circumstances are we are willing to accept it," he said.

Nath also targeted RSS chief Ram Bhagwat over his remarks on Mother Terasa, saying his "true colour and character" has been exposed.
