AFP, NEW DELHI

Land acquisition for roads, factories or other development is a controversial issue across India.

An editorial in the Hindu newspaper yesterday said that land acquisition has often been exploited by opposition parties ahead of local elections.

“With just a year left before the assembly election, the opposition obviously wants to trip up Chief Minister Mayawati on the farmers issue, denting her image as a champion of social justice,” it said.
