New Delhi: The government will convene an all party meet on Tuesday to iron out the controversial Land Acquisition Bill. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath has called the meeting as the party meet could not reach a consensus by March 7.
While the Left wants the Land Bill to be sent back to the standing committee, the Trinamool Congress has completely rejected it. Earlier in April, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had said, "The Land Acquisition and Rehabilitation and Resettlement Bill has been cleared by the Cabinet and will soon go to Parliament".
The long awaited Land Bill seeks to address problems of the industry with regards to acquisition of land for setting up green field projects.
While the Left wants the Land Bill to be sent back to the standing committee, the Trinamool Congress has completely rejected it.
