New Delhi, April 9: A group of farmers’ organisations moved the Supreme Court on Thursday seeking the re-promulgated land ordince to be quashed on the grounds of its being ultra vires of the Constitution and devoid of constitutiol morality. They sought the government be restrained from enforcing it. The Bharatiya Kishan Union, Delhi Grameen Samaj, Gram Sewa Samiti and Chogama Vikas Avam said, “The Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement (Amendment) Ordince, 2015, is unconstitutiol, null and void and ultra vires Articles 14 and 123 of the Constitution of India and hence void ab initio”. Describing it as a “colourful exercise of power” by the government, the petitioner organisations also sought the apex court’s direction to the government restraining it from “acting upon” the ordince. Describing the re-promulgation of the ordince “as arbitrary as violative of Article 14 of the constitution”, the farmers organisations said it was a “fraud on the Constitution itself”. (IANS)
