Guwahati, February 23: Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today said his government extends full support to social activist An Hazare in his fight against the Land Acquisition Ordince.
In a statement today, Gogoi said that the Government of Assam has all along been opposing anti-people, anti-farmers’ policies. “Our Government stood against anti-people and anti-farmers’ policies. The Land Acquisition Ordince is anti-people and anti-farmers and meant to serve only the interests of the rich, affluent and industrialists. We are dead against such a policy and not going to implement it. Our Government expresses its strong opposition to the Ordince and extends full support to social activist An Hazare in his crusade against it,” he added.
The Chief Minister further said that he had attended the swearing-in ceremony of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to express his solidarity with all-like minded secular and progressive parties in their fight against divisive forces and lend support for pro-poor policies.
