Former BJP state President and legislator Tala Marandi has said that the amendment was against the sentiments of the tribal people.
The discontent was also aired when BJP national General Secretary Ram Madhav interacted with the party leaders and legislators in Ranchi on Saturday.
The party's Core Committee members and legislators demanded withdrawal of the amendment in two land acts - Chotanagpur Tenancy Act (CNT) and Santhal Pargana Tenancy Act.
Madhav, presently on a three-day visit to Jharkhand, is interacting with the party leaders in different districts.
On Saturday, he discussed the government's functioning and party's position on the two land acts in Ranchi. He interacted with the BJP leaders in Seraikela-Kharsawa district the next day.
He is scheduled to meet the party leaders in Khunti on Monday.
Both Seraikela-Kharsawa and Khunti are tribal dominated districts.
During the interaction, the party leaders openly aired their anguish over functioning of the state government and amendment in the two land acts.
The BJP's alliance partner, All Jharkhand Students Union (AJSU), is also opposing the amendment in the two land acts along with the opposition parties.
The protest over the amendment is going on a regular basis in the state.
After the amendment, the state government can acquire land for industries, infrastructure and other works.
Agriculture land can be used for non-agriculture purposes.
According to BJP leaders, the amendment has sent a wrong signal among the tribal community that constitutes 27 per cent of the state population.
