Why Anna Hazare demand changes in Land Acquisition Act.

    Social activist Anna Hazare, who is spearheading agitation against amendments in the Land Acquisition Act, Wednesday rubbished Government's claim that these were more "effective" and "farmer-friendly", saying it was trying to mislead the people.
"The government is more worried about the industrialists and not about farmers. The country has woken up now. These people will also take irrigated land and give it to the industrialists," Hazare said.
Land aggregators, village officials and other middlemen will benefit from graft if the process of acquisition is made difficult through the need for 70/80 percent consent and Social Impact Assessment studies. It has been estimated that acquiring a large parcel of land under the UPA Act would take four to five years. In fact, by making acquisitions easier, it will be able to make payments quicker to land sellers. The poor will get rehabilitated faster if the deal goes through faster, not by dragging it over five years.
"Under the new law, if farmer's land is acquired, he cannot approach the court unless the government permits him. Going to court is the fundamental right of every individual," the social activist said, adding that he will form a committee of 8-10 people to decide the future course of action at the national level.
