 BJP Criticizes Mamta Banerjee for Her Remarks on the Land Ordinance Act

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) criticized West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's remarks on the recently passed land ordinance act, and terming the TMC chief's stand as against the interest of her state. Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had said that the land ordinance act intends to make a fair balance between the interest of farmers and industry. However, Mamta Banerjee has termed the ordinance as 'black ordinance' and urged people to burn symbolic copies of it.

BJP spokesperson G V L Narasimha Rao said, "As a Chief Minister, as a constitutional head of the state, she is bound to implement the law. We leave it to the people of Bengal, who will judge Mamata on her opposition to a very progressive legislation that the Centre has planned." The BJP leader also accused Banerjee of taking a negative role as far as industrialization is concerned. He added, "Mamata Banerjee has always taken a very negative role as far as the industrialization of West Bengal is concerned. The manner with which she unleashed protests in West Bengal and ensured that the Tatas exited from the Nano project in West Bengal shows her history of anti-development efforts."


The new law will come into effect from January 1, 2015. It will see the owners of land acquired via laws exempted under the act being eligible for a similar compensation. The ordinance is being brought as the government failed to amend as many as 13 central legislations to bring their rehabilitation and resettlement and compensation provisions at par with those of the new Land Acquisition Act for buying land across the country.
