ones to match India’s defence purchases according to a report Jane’s Defence Weekly reported this week that Pakistan would seek to purchase ten F-16 additional planes from the United States if the current deal for eight of these fighter jets is successfully concluded Dawn quoted the Jane’s Defence Weekly that Pakistan wants new 16C/D Block 52 multi-role fighters which are equipped with

needed to retire 190 planes by 2020 forcing the country to look for various options The official said that the strong resistance it faced in the US Congress for buying a small batch of eight planes was "discouraging" "That’s why we are looking at other options too such as buying them from Russia or France" The official noted that while French planes were "very expensive the Russians are not and they are equally good" Last week the US Senate rejected a move to shoot down the proposed sale of eight F-16 which is now in its final stages On Saturday the 30-day mandatory period that allows Congress to block an arms sale to a foreign country also passed Although some technical details are still being worked out the deal for these eight aircraft is almost final the report said In September last year Russia offered to sell Su-35 planes to Pakistan which are among the fifth generation aircraft it said Pakistani officials say that India’s defence purchases also influence their search for a matching technology India is already working on a plan to replace its current fleet of planes with fifth generation aircraft by 2020 forcing Pakistan to do the same They say that while Pakistan is not looking to match the exact number of planes the Indians have but they would like to maintain a fleet of 350 to 400 aircraft Pakistani officials point out that they also have a large-scale defence collaboration with China "which is a great source of strength" for the country The eight planes that Pakistan is buying from the United States include two single-seat F-16Cs and six twin-seat F-16Ds along with associated equipment —for about $699 million PTI New Delhi: The new land bill will enable faster growth and check distress migration from rural areas by creating local employment Rural Development Minister Birender Singh has said while hoping that the legislation will be passed in the Rajya Sabha session beginning next week Birender Singh 69 accused the Congress of blocking the new land acquisition bill only for political considerations as it touches 70 percent of population Birender Singh PIB He said Congress-led United Progress Alliance (UPA) government got the land bill passed in 2013 "in a hurry" with over 50 "drafting errors" as it wanted to reap benefits of the legislation in last year’s Lok Sabha elections Enumerating benefits of the new bill which has been dubbed as "anti-farmer" by Congress and some opposition parties Birender Singh said its enabling provisions will give boost to infrastructure manufacturing and employment The bill enables the state governments to take "situation-specific steps" for development of their states while at the same time safegauarding the interests of farmers he said "It takes care of the imperatives of growth and employment on the one hand and interests of the farmers on the other The bill is the need of the hour If we do not seize our opportunities the world will not wait for us" Singh told IANS in an interview Singh who joined BJP last year after serving Congress for several decades said that during the state ministers’ conference held in June 2014 almost all the participants had emphatically brought out that the acquisition under the 2013 Act was extremely difficult The new bill provides creation of land bank compensation at two to four times of market rate to the land owner in case of acquisition as also resettlement and rehabilitation "It empowers various departments of state and Centre to acquire land to build irrigation canals roads rural housing infrastructure such as agricultural-produce transportation hubs warehouses and agriculture support facilities The proposed industrial corridors will also help create employment locally while boosting country’s GDP growth" Singh explained to remove misconceptions about the purpose of the bill He said the bill does not permit acquisition by the government for private players but allows the government to create industrial corridors where industries and enterprises will come up to usher growth Though contribution of agriculture to GDP reduced from 30 percent to 145 percent in two decades from 1990-91 nearly half the

country would prefer to take up some other work Poor income bleak future and stress were among the main reasons identified for their desire to give up farming and migrate to cities Singh said benefits of the new bill will be felt in the coming months and years and will prove "worth of our policies" The Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition Resettlement and Rehabilitation (Amendment) Bill 2015 was passed in the Lok Sabha in the first half of budget session with nine official amendments It has not yet been taken up in the Rajya Sabha where the National Democratic Alliance government lacks majority Singh said Congress was opposing the bill merely for the sake of opposing it "Congress is saying that we want the 2013 Act without any changes There is only political angle and that’s why there is political resistance or ‘blockade’" The minister said political parties calibrate their stand on various issues from time to time and opposition parties would not like to be "on the wrong foot" on the land bill "I think it will be passed We have diligently gone through each suggestion that we received and have brought nine amendments in Lok Sabha If there is anything in the interest of farmers we have no objections (in accepting it)" he said Singh grandson of Sir Chhotu Ram who was a prominent pre-partition politician and a champion of interests of farmers said he will not allow any injustice to farmers "There cannot be injustice to farmers while I am there.The bill is definitively pro-farmer" Singh said Asked about the possibility of government going for a joint session if the bill is not passed in the Rajya Sabha he said: "We have not thought about it" The land ordinance was re-promulgated earlier this month as the bill was not passed in the first half of budget session The Rajya Sabha was prorogued to enable repromulgation of the ordnance The new bill provides for removal of consent clause for acquiring land for certain sectors
