He stressed on the Land Acquisition Bill explaining that the Congress is not against acquisition of land if used for any infrastructural project but their concern and objection is to the acquisition of land in being used for a private or PPP projects (Public Private Partnership ) and where private profiteering is involved. He was of the opinion that consent of 70% farmers should be taken with regards to land acquisition.. Taking a move without their consent would be unconstitutional.
He touched upon the Labour Employment aspect in which he said that the dependability of 60% population of the country on agriculture needs to come down .
