Nitish Kumar terms Land bill as black law; seeks recall

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday described the controversial Land Acquisition Bill introduced in Lok Sabha as a "black law" and demanded its immediate recall.



Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday described the controversial Land Acquisition Bill introduced in Lok Sabha as a "black law" and demanded its immediate recall.

"The Land Acquisition Bill is anti-farmer and pro-rich. It's a black law," Kumar said.

"The Bill seems to have taken the heart out of the legislation prepared in 2013," Kumar, also a senior JD(U) leader, said.

Kumar, who assumed charge as Bihar CM for the fourth time two days back, said: "We will not implement the Land Bill in the state at any cost."

The Bihar CM backed agitation of social worker Anna Hazare over land acquisition Bill and promised all support to him on the issue.

He said the Bill seems to have been introduced to cater to the needs of rich and big corporate houses at the cost of the interest of farmers and poor.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi used to make tall claims regarding farmers and poor but "his act is contrary to the promises made," Kumar said adding "development should be inclusive and not unilateral".
