Environment minister Prakash Javadekar on Sunday expressed confidence that the amended Land Acquisition Bill will be passed by the Rajya Sabha this week.
He said two others Bills, Coal Bill and the Mines Bill are also likely to be passed by the upper house next week.
“I hope that next week in Parliament (next five days) will be very fruitful. We have accepted all suggestions of various parties. Wisdom will prevail. All the Bills (that are pending) which are necessary for the development of the country will be passed this week,” Javadekar told reporters here.
He said that the proposed Land Acquisition Bill, has been debated well and hoped that the amendments will be satisfactory.
The Bill tabled in the Parliament, had last month faced stiff resistance from the opposition and BJP’s own allies, who termed it as “anti-farmer” and saw protests from all corners.
Last week, on Tuesday, the Lok Sabha passed the Bill with a total of nine amendments.
