RLD chief Ajit Singh on Thursday said the government should ask private developers to buy land directly from farmers and it should acquire land only for public welfare projects which are developed solely by state-run agencies.
The government Tuesday informed the Lok Sabha that 18 special economic zones have been scrapped on the back of developers being impacted by the global economic slowdown.
The mad rush to set up Special Economic Zones that house export-oriented manufacturing units three years ago turned cold in 2009, as demand for commercial space waned due to the global meltdown.
