“It will not make any difference. It is a one-man government,” party spokesman Jairam Ramesh told reporters.
Amid reports about S S Ahluwalia, who headed the JPC on the land acquisition issue, being inducted into the Council of Ministers, Ramesh said one could guess what would be the fate of the amendments the government wants to bring in the bill.
On AIMIM Chief Asaduddin Owaisi’s decision to give legal aid to alleged ISIS sympathisers, Ramesh said the issue is not Owaisi’s comments but those who have been arrested for having links with ISIS and that’s the “real issue”.
“Law of the land must proceed fully, professionally and I think we shouldn’t allow ourselves to be diverted by side political issues. Main political issue is that young men who are believed to be having links with ISIS have been taken into custody and should be fully investigated,” he said.
