Hyderabad: While welcoming the draft on Central Land Reforms, representatives from various political parties have expressed scepticism of its enactment and implementation. In a round table conference organised at Sundarayya Vignana Kendram, CPM State secretary B V Raghavulu felt that the idea was driven more with the focus on elections rather than with an urge to extend welfare to the people. “It would have been a revolutionary step, if the government is sincere in its efforts,” he said.
He said that there was a need to ensure social participation, rather than emphasising on social audit. CPI State secretariat member, Ramakrishna said that the draft has not recognised the plight of the tenant farmers.

N Vijaykumar, from TDP, emphasised the retrospective measures for benefit of larger sections of the society instead of helping out few companies in the name of progress.
