Chennai: DMK president M Karunanidhi said on Friday the party would protest across Tamil Nadu on March 20, condemning the BJP government`s attempts to pass the land bill in Parliament despite opposition to it.

The party would also demand a CBI probe into the suicide of a state government official, he said in a statement issued here.

Karunanidhi said the land bill has provisions to snatch away the rights of farmers while helping multi-national companies.

Though the allies of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had initially opposed the bill, they later voted in its favour in the Lok Sabha, he said.

The AIADMK which also opposed the amendment bill initially, later supported the same for unknown reasons, Karunanidhi said.

He said the party would also hold protest demanding a probe by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the suicide of an engineer in the agricultural department last month.
