RS: Trinamool opposes statement by minister on draconian land ordinance
Trinamool Congress today strongly protested against the Statement by Minister explaining the circumstances which had necessitated immediate legislation by promulgation of the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement (Amendment) Ordinance, 2015.
Voicing the party’s dissent to the draconian law, the leader of the party in Rajya Sabha, Derek O’Brien said this anti-farmer, anti-people ordinance must be scrapped. He added that Trinamool has been consistent in its opposition to the draconian land bill.
As a token of protest, a Trinamool MP also tore up the agenda papers which listed the statement by minister in business for the day.
