New Delhi: Amidst reports that the government had finally managed to get the Opposition on board on the key Finance Bill, senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha on Monday wrote to P Chidambaram demanding certain amendments to the Bill. Sinha reportedly sought the amendment to ensure that farmers whose land was being attached for non-payment of wealth tax were provided some relief.

Naresh Gujaral of Akali Dal had raised this matter in Parliament earlier.

Sources say that the Finance Bill is likely to be taken up on Tuesday along with demands for grants. The demands for grants for four ministries were agreed upon on Sunday in consultation with opposition parties.
