Original #Landacquisitionact was brought into force by the then British Indian Government in 1894. In fact the same law was implemented in Ireland by the British to grab land from Irish people. This law was applied by the British on Indian farmers as Land Acquisition act of 1894 and ironically continued by the Governments of India later upto 2013. First decision of Indian Government that sworn in after India became a Republic was “ abolition of #Zamindaris “, under the slogan of Land to the tillers. And Land Ceiling act aimed at big farmers in a view to distribute the land to marginal farmers but it did not succeeded in its aim. And It is interesting to note that #Janasangh ( Janata Government ) and Communists joined hands to take away the fundamental right of people over their land in 1978. Eventually it runs against fundamental right to profession guaranteed under article 14 of constitution of India. New land acquisition act brought into force in 2013 has given a respite by providing for consent of 70% of farmers and some compensation for the farmers. Now BJP wants to nullify the amendments brought in 2013 to the original act of 1894. That means BJP wants to take us to 120 years back. It should be noted that because of this land grabbing law Ireland saw historical peasant uprisings that lead to freedom of Ireland from the hegemony of England in 1921. Between 1890 and 1920 about 10 Lakh Irelanders migrated to America to evade persecution and death brought upon them by England. Now BJP wants to turn the clock back to a whopping 120 Years. Let us see what is store for Indians in times to come.
