Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu has stated that the Land Acquisition Bill and many other important bills would be put forth in the upcoming second part of budget session of the parliament.

Speaking to reporters in Hyderabad on Friday, the Union minister said that Congress and other opposition parties should help the government in passing the crucial bills.

"The Land Bill is the need of the hour. We are running against time to catch up with lost opportunities. The world is moving faster. India cannot lag behind. Parliament should prove to be an enabler rather than a playing ground for political and obstructionist battles,” he told reporters in Hyderabad.

Naidu has stated that the government has made the bill after incorporating suggestions including those from Congress leaders, yet Congress is opposing the bill just for the sake of it.
