Won't allow forcible takeover of land in Delhi: Kejriwal

Posted on 25th Feb 2015 10:47 am by mohit kumar

New Delhi, Feb 24 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday said he will not allow the central government to forcibly take land away from anyone in the national capital under the amended land acquisition law.

Addressing a crowd of protestors led by anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare, who has launched a two-day agitation against the bill tabled in parliament by the NDA government, Kejriwal said: "We will use all our force to ensure that land is not taken away forcibly from anyone in Delhi."

Kejriwal clarified that land is a subject that comes under the purview of the central government but his government would still make all the necessary efforts to protect the poor.

The government Tuesday introduced the land acquisition amendment bill in the Lok Sabha amid uproar by the opposition.

Hazare, who led an anti-corruption movement against the previous UPA government, Monday launched an agitation against the measure at Jantar Mantar here, terming it as "undemocratic" and demanding its withdrawal.
