New Delhi: Government intends to have another round of discussion with Opposition on the Land Bill before moving it in Rajya Sabha as parties including Congress, the Left and some others have escalated the protest against the measure.
The Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement (Amendment) Bill, 2015 was passed in Lok Sabha on February 24 with nine amendments.
It is likely to face stiff opposition in the Upper House where the government does not enjoy a majority and most of the Opposition parties have already declared their resolve to oppose the bill tooth and nail.
There will be another round of talks with the Opposition before moving the Bill in Rajya Sabha, sources in the government said.
Leaders of ten political parties including the Left, TMC, JD(U), SP, RJD and JDS will hold a protest march against the Land Bill and hand over a memorandum to the President Pranab Mukherjee tomorrow.
While the Congress is continuing its stir against the NDA government's Land Bill, holding a protest in the national capital, starting from symbolical Bhatta Parasual village in Uttar Pradesh four days ago, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar led a 24-hour satyagraha against the bill in Patna last week.
