India Against Land Exploitation -Call your MP – Day I


The below conversation was the 7th MP i had called, but due to the interesting conversation, moving up the order 🙂

Me: Sir, what do you think of ordinance to amend the Land Acquisition Act
MP7: It’s anti farmer and pro companies
Me: (Pleasantly surprised :-). Very true sir, so why was the act even amended through the ordinance
MP7: There has been a lot of debate within the party and some senior leaders even opposed. But this time i’m very confident that the amendments will be done to the bill to bring back the clauses
Me: That will be great Sir, why can’t you also talk about this openly in the media so your voice can be heard
MP7: I’m a long time MP and part of the party that passed this ordinance. I don’t agree with that so i will discuss this internally within the party but can’t go out. If i was in opposition, it would have been different
Me: Sir, you are the first MP who i spoke to has openly admitted. Thank you. Also would you like to join our campaign – it will be a big boost to our campaign
MP7; Laughs and says, i will do what i can
Me: Sir, can you please advice which MP’s we could talk to or who can influence the party
MP7: BJP has lot of 1st time MP’s who don’t have enough knowledge of the land acquisition. I would suggest you talk to Murali Manohar joshi, Susham Swaraj, Advani et all.
Me: I did try sir, but only got their VM, but thank you very much for you time. Please don’t mind if i call you again to seek advice regarding the campaign
MP7: Ok Ok.

I can’t disclose the name of the MP7 as requested by him
