Assam government opposes Land Acquisition Ordinance

Assam government has extended full support to social activist Anna Hazare in his fight against the Land Acquisition Ordinance.

In a statement on Monday, chief minister Tarun Gogoi said that the Government of Assam has all along been opposing anti-people, anti-farmers’ policies. “Our Government stood against anti-people and anti-farmers’ policies. The Land Acquisition Ordinance is anti-people and anti-farmers’ and meant to serve only the interests of the rich, affluent and industrialists. We are dead against such a policy and not going to implement it. Our Government expresses its strong opposition to the Ordinance and extends full support to social activist Anna Hazare in his crusade against it,” he added.

The chief minister further said that he had attended the swearing-in ceremony of Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar to express his solidarity with all-like minded secular and progressive parties in their fight against divisive forces and lend support for pro-poor policies.
