Opposition Leader V S Achuthanandan has said that the UDF Government is sabotaging the land reforms legislation by allowing conversion of paddy field and wetland and 10 per cent of plantation areas under the shadow of Emerging Kerala projects.

Inaugurating the 20th state conference of the Kerala State Karshaka Thozhilali Union here on Wednesday, the Opposition Leader said that the UDF Government, in the name of Emerging Kerala summit, is watering the land reforms law of 2005, which prevents conversion of paddy fields and wetland.   He said that the government failed to initiate measures for food security and check the priceof essential commodities.

VS added that the government instead of ensuring remunerative price for the agricultural produce, hiked the fertilisers’ price and thus gave additional burden for farmers .  The government failed in paying pension for the agricultural workers on time and the pension payment was made after Onam festival.
