Prime minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that "if there is anything against farmers in land acquisition bill, the government is ready to change it".
Speaking on motion of thanks to the president's address to parliament, Modi said "lot of discussion is going on the land acquisition issue. When the Act was made, we walked shoulder to shoulder with you."
Taking a swipe at the opposition, the PM said, "we knew you were hurrying passage of the bill for political gains, yet we stood with you."
"In an era of co-operative federalism, can we become arrogant? Should we not listen to the chief ministers of the states," Modi asked.
Making it very clear about the vision of the administration he said “my government's only religion is 'India first', only religious book is Indian Constitution, only prayer is welfare of all.”
