Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today said that acquisition of farmers’ land by the Centre would not be allowed at any cost.

Talking to reporters here, Akhilesh said that the “precious land of farmers” could not be taken without their will.

“Agriculture is the main employment oriented sector in the country. Farmers use their land for earning. Acquiring land all of a sudden will be injustice to farmers,” he said.

The chief minister said that there would be no shortage of funds for the development of the state.

“Our government is performing better as compared to many other states, but media is not focusing on that,” he said.
