Voicing strong opposition to the Land Acquisition Ordinance, the Assam Government on Monday extended full support to social activist Anna Hazare in his fight against the Ordinance.
In a statement in Guwahati, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said that the state government has all along been opposing anti-people and anti-farmer policies.
“Our government stood against anti-people and anti-farmer policies. The Land Acquisition Ordinance is anti-people and anti-farmers and meant to serve only the interests of the rich, affluent and industrialists,” Gogoi said.
“Our government is dead against such an anti-people and anti-farmer policy and is not going to implement it. Our government expresses its strong opposition to the ordinance and extends full support to social activist Anna Hazare in his crusade against it”, he added.
The chief minister also said, “I attended the swearing in ceremony of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to express my solidarity with all like minded secular and progressive parties in their fight against divisive forces and lend support for pro-poor policies”.
