Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday opposed the land acquisition bill and accused the central government of “interfering” in the functioning of the AAP government.

He further said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was “arm-twisting” the states by misusing the Central Bureau of Investigation.

“The notion that the 2013 legislation will result in cessation of development of this country is incorrect. Also, the argument that this will result in waste of time is flawed,” Kejriwal told the NITI Aayog meet here.

He was referring to the land acquisition law enacted by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government which the proposed measure seeks to amend.

“On the contrary, if the government tries to snatch the land from farmers, it will lead to litigation running into years,” he said.

The Modi government has brought a new land acquisition bill — which has been termed as anti-farmer by the opposition parties.

Kejriwal also referred to the ongoing turf war between the central and Delhi governments over a host of issues, and accused the Centre of interfering in the functioning of his government.

“You cannot govern the country while sitting in Delhi and, therefore, the spirit of federalism is of utmost importance.”
