Advising his alliance (BJP) leaders not to fall prey to the 'misinformation' campaign launched by RJD and LJP on issue related to sharecroppers, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday said a high-level committee was still looking into the matter.

He said the D Bandopadhyay Commission on land reforms had made various recommendations on land related issues in Bihar, but the state government had only endorsed its suggestions on ceiling surplus land and bhudan land.

The panel suggested 75 per cent share for sharecroppers in the yield and they could take bank loan on land they tilled.

A section of BJP leaders, including its Rajya Sabha MP Dr C P Thakur, yesterday said the Sharecroppers' Bill, in keeping with the D Bandopadhyay commission report, had caused fear-psychosis among landowners and 'to a great extent spoiled' the NDA's performance in the bypoll to 18 assembly seats in the state.

Kumar said the suggestions of the D Bandopadhyay report related to tilling of land by sharecroppers had been handed over to a high-level committee for veting and giving its suggestions to the government.

"After receiving suggestions from the high-level committee, we will take a fresh view on the issue and decide what to do," he told reporters.
