Chennai, Mar 20: DMK president M. Karunanidhi urged the central government on Friday not to go ahead with the land acquisition bill and reconsider it.

"All the political parties and Anna Hazare (social activist) are opposing the land bill," Karunanidhi said, addressing a rally held here by the party against the bill.

The DMK president said Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said the land bill would not be implemented in his state.

The central and state governments should rethink about the land bill, Karunanidhi said, urging them to shun arrogant attitude and learn from history.

He accused the ruling AIADMK party in Tamil Nadu of changing its stance on the bill in two years and said it extended its support to the bill owing to self-interest.

The DMK held protests across the state on Friday, condemning the Bharatiya Janata Party government's attempts to pass the land bill in parliament despite stiff opposition across the country.
