Prime Minister Modi desperately trying to build consensus on land bill
New Delhi: Land Bill is becoming a hardsell for the BJP government in Delhi. Opposition against it is building and it is finding itself cornered from all sides.
In the meantime Prime Minister Narendra Modi is working hard to build consensus on the issue. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday urged all political parties to move forward on the land acquisition bill that has created a major national divide. â€œAll party leaders should move forward on the bill,â€ the prime minister told an all-party meeting here, a day before parliament opens its monsoon session. Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy quoted Modi as saying that his government was willing to accept all good suggestions from opposition parties on various issues.
The minister went on to add that it was the collective responsibility of the parties to ensure a smooth functioning of parliament. Rudy spoke to reporters after the all-party meet convened by Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu to discuss the agenda for the session. The meeting was attended by Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, Samajwadi Partyâ€™s Ram Gopal Yadav, Janata Dal-Unitedâ€™s Sharad Yadav, Bahujan Samaj Partyâ€™s Satish Mishra and CPI-Mâ€™s Sitaram Yechury among others.
