The Congress on Saturday condemned the government’s decision to recommend re-promulgation of the land ordinance, terming it “an insult to the parliament” while calling for its withdrawal.

The decision to re-promulgate the ordinance “was a gross injustice with farmers of the country”, said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala in a statement, adding that the government should seek forgiveness from people on the “insensitive decision”.

“This is insult of the Indian parliament which had refused to pass the anti-farmer bill,” Surjewala said.

Accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of “double-faced anti-farmer attitude”, Surjewala said, “The Prime Minister had said he was open to suggestions on the land bill but his government again put its stamp on the ordinance.”

“On the one hand, the BJP-led government forms a joint committee to have a re-look at the bill, on the other hand it plays a cruel trick (to approve re-promulgation of ordinance),” he said, adding the decision should be immediately taken back.
