Human Rights Forum State president U.G.Srinivasulu and general secretary K.Sudha has opposed the introduction of a Bill in the State Assembly to emend the Land Acquisition Act, 2013.

They said that it is nothing but forcible acquisition of land in the name of land pooling. The Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013 which was achieved as a result of long-drawn struggles had recognised rehabilitation as a ‘right of the displaced’ for the first time. It provided security to people, who were losing their lands for the setting up of industries and other infrastructure projects.
