Hoshiarpur: The Hoshiarpur unit of Youth Congress in the leadership of District President Amarpreet Singh Lally today submitted a memorandum to the District Administration seeking the cancellation of Land Acquisition Ordinance passed by the Modi Government.
NSUI workers were also present on this occasion.
Amarpreet Lally said that the Congress have always been caring for the rights of the farmers and made important amendments into the Land Acquisition Law but the Modi Government have been planning to ruin the farmers by forcibly acquiring the land of farmers. He said that the Modi Government have made many new amendments in the Land Acquisition Law by passing an ordinance which resembles the Land Acquisition Law framed by the British Government.
He demanded immediate cancellation of the Ordinance.
NSUI President Damandeep Billa said that the Shiromani Akali Dal depict itself as the saviors of the rights of the farmers but they have been silent over the passing of this ordinance which shows collusion between SAD and BJP over this matter.
