BJP top brass met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and is reported to have discussed the Land Acquisition Ordinance. BJP President Amit Shah and Union Ministers Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley and Nitin Gadkari met the Prime Minister at his Race Course Road residence late this evening and have discussed ways and means of finding a solution to the land issue. Government is trying to find a legal way out of the situation and may not want to re-promulgate the controversial land ordinance and will thus allow it to lapse on April 5. The leaders put their mind together to find a solution of getting an end to the uncertainty of the bill
While the bill, providing for amending the Act of 2013, was cleared by the Lok Sabha earlier this month, it got stuck in Rajya Sabha with the entire opposition uniting against it in the House. Government was not keen to take the unusual step of proroguing the Budget Session during the recess as it would hardly serve any purpose and might lead to charges of arrogance on the ruling dispensation.
