The land acquisition ordinance was tabled in the Lok Sabha on Monday by minister of state for parliamentary affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy. The ordinance was promulgated by President Pranab Mukherjee on April 3.

Opposition members raised slogans like "withdraw the bill" and "down with the anti-farmer government", terming the re-promulgation of the ordinance as "murder of democracy".

Congress party vice president Rahul Gandhi, after holding a rally of farmers in New Delhi, spoke on the land bill in Lok Sabha during post-lunch session.

“Your government is a government of the rich and the corporates. It is the government of the 'suit and boot,” said Rahul to BJP amid din in LS.

His other points made during the confident speech are:

The achche din govt has failed the people on minimum support price and agriculture credit.

The farmer gave us green revolution, because he was provided with the idea of MSP


Green revolution happened because farmers were given abundant credit and were given an MSP to sell his crop

The current govt has raised the MSP of wheat by Rs 10 only.

You talk about strengthening the country, but what is the result of all this?

The biggest agricultural experts have said that 180 lakh hectares has been destroyed by the unseasonal rains but the PM says 106 lakh hectares.

I want to give a suggestion to the PM. He should go and visit those areas where the people and farmers are in pain.

You talk about defence, about fighter planes but don't talk about the 60% of this country.

The PM knows political calculations. He has won the elections. 67 percent of people are dependent on agriculture. I have a question in mind. If PM understands political compulsions then why does he want to anger more than 67 percent of the people.

Only one answer comes to my mind and that is - The land price is increasing at a fast rate and your corporate friends want that land. That is why you are weakening the farmers and then you will hit them with the ordinance axe.

If you believe that those corporates who drive in swanky cars are India's foundation you are gravely mistaken.

I have one more suggestion for the PM. He should switch sides. The strength of the country is in the hands of the farmers.
