New Delhi: May: Rahul Gandhi today accused the NDA government of “killing” the Land Acquisition Act brought by the UPA and said Congress will fiercely resist within and outside Parliament the attempt of “suit-boot ki sarkar” to “grab” farmers’ land.
“This government is in a hurry to pass this bill… It will not happen so easily. If we are not able to stop it here (in Parliament), we will hit the streets against it outside,” the Congress Vice President said in Lok Sabha during a debate on the land bill.
He drew a parallel between a daylight robbery and the proposed law, saying an economist had told him that thieves wearing suits now strike during daylight.
Rahul’s repeated jibes at the Modi government invited running protests from the treasury benches.
Hitting out at the bill, he termed it as an attempt by the government to acquire land, whose price has been rising, for industrialist “friends” and crony capitalists.
“This government wants to give land to crony capitalists and its industrialist friends because it’s a ‘suit-boot ki sarkar’,” he said. ..
