Bajna (Mathura), July 8: A day ahead of his mega farmers rally in Aligarh, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi Friday assured farmers that the government would introduce a farmer-friendly land acquisition bill in parliament.
Speaking to farmers on the fourth day of his padyatra or foot march to raise awareness about land acquisition, Gandhi told farmers: ‘Although the union government is being run by coalition partners and different states have different kinds of problems, but the proposed land acquisition bill finally passed would be farmer-friendly.’
‘It takes time to make a new law on land acquisition and the union government is working on it. If we make the law in haste, it will be wrong. We wish to make a new law which can last for at least next 30 to 40 years if not half a century,’ he said.
