Jaipur: BJP's Kisan Morcha today staged protests in Rajasthan demanding introduction of a legislation during the forthcoming winter session of Parliament to amend the Land Acquisition Act, saying it had become outdated.

"The 116-year-old Land Acquisition Act is outdated and not equipped to protect the interests of farmers. So, a land acquisition amendment bill must be tabled in the winter session of Parliament, Morcha's state in-charge Kaptan Singh Solanki, who led the protests at the collectorate here, said.

Protests were held at all the district headquarters in the state in support of the demand, he said.

Accusing the government of acquiring the land of farmers without giving proper compensation to them, Solanki said a memorandum addressed to the President, was submitted to the District Collector here with several suggestions at the end of the protests.
