Amid fierce protest from opposition political party, the government on failing to sail the Land Acquisition Bill in Parliament decided to take the rout of ordinance again when cabinet cleared Land Ordinance repromulgation.
The bill is pending before the Rajya Sabha and it is not possible that the Bill would see light of the day before April 5 when it lapses. The government recommended, the President had prorogued the Rajya Sabha which is necessary for the government to issue ordinance. Parliament is on a month-long break from the Budget session. In the meantime, the government is reaching out to farmers.
