KOZHIKODE: The amendments mooted by the Narendra Modi government,if adopted and implemented, would set ground for the biggest ever corruption and land scams the country has witnessed, Congress vice-  president Rahul Gandhi said here on Tuesday.

“It has become very clear that the new Bill is to snatch farmer’s land. The stand of the Modi government that bringing in clauses for easy acquisition of land alone would facilitate the ‘Make in India’ goal is a total lie. The Finance Ministry has disclosed that more than 80 per cent of the pending projects is not idling because of paucity of land, whereas such projects are a meagre 8 per cent only,” Rahul told an overflowing public meet at the beach here,organised as part of the state conference of the Youth Congress.

“Land is available aplenty with the governments in various states. The move is only to appease the corporates who had helped Modi to come to power,” he said. “All justifications otherwise would not surmise. “Farmers and the unemployed are told that only if they parted with their land, they could be helped with giving jobs. People do not believe it,” he reminded and said that the UPA government had inserted many critical clauses to protect the ryots.Continuing his blistering attack against Narendra Modi and his government which he had rolled out recently in Parliament, Rahul also dismissed the claims of the Prime minister that prices of  essential commodities have been brought under control.

May be, Modi is talking like this since he is spending in foreign countries and not in India,” he said.He made it clear that the Congress is determined to reach out to the masses by following its well-established objective that every section of Indian society has a right to a decent life and dream to realise it.
