Bengaluru, April 4:
The BJP on Saturday accused the opposition parties, particularly the Congress, of trying to spread “disinformation” about the land acquisition bill and said that the government will try and explain the provisions of the bill at the ground level.
As far as the land bill is concerned, “we are worried about the disinformation campaign. It is against facts”, BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman told the media here.
“We are confident about the amendments brought by us and about Prime Minister Narendra Modi directly engaging with people and explaining the points on radio. We are willing to discuss with anyone,” she said as the BJP national executive’s two-day meet took place here.
Sitharaman said the BJP will go to the people to ask whether the amendments are anti-farmer. “It is a disinformation campaign which particularly the Congress is trying to spread.”
“While they have refused to answer questions on distribution of coal blocks, every step of what we are doing is being explained to the people,” she added.
“BJP will reveal the facts at every village,” she said.
The controversial land acquisition ordinance was re-promulgated on Friday after President Pranab Mukherjee gave his assent to it. (IANS)
