Patna: Union food, consumer affairs and public distribution minister Ram Vilas Paswan said here on Sunday that the Centre was very much concerned about land reforms in the country and will soon table a Bill in the Lok Sabha for this purpose. This was necessitated as there is scarcity of land.

Reiterating that his party LJP would support the Land Acquisition Amendment Bill placed in the lower House of parliament, he said the country would not be able to develop unless land is made available for the setting up of factories. He also requested other parties to support it.

Taking a dig at JD (U) workers' rally here on Sunday, Paswan said CM Nitish Kumar won't return to power in the state assembly elections to be held later this year irrespective of what he does. "People now understand his gimmicks and game plan and would not repeat the mistake of installing him for another term," he said.

He also criticized Nitish for saying that "overall (Union) Budget thik nahi hai", even while appreciating the benefits given to Bihar in the Budget. His remark speaks about his confused state of mind. "Nitish has no moral right to criticize the Union Budget as it has given to Bihar more than the chief minister had expected," Paswan said.

"Nitish had knocked the doors of the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and then finance minister P Chidambaram for special financial assistance, but to no avail. But, the Modi government gave Bihar special financial assistance without asking for it," the LJP supremo added.

He said with the Centre accepting the 14th Finance Commission recommendation to give states 42% share of central taxes against 32% so far, Bihar would get more 'untied' funds and thus be able to spend funds as per the state's priorities. He also asked Nitish to spell out what he planned to do with the announcements made by his predecessor Jitan Ram Manjhi in the last few days of his tenure.
