New Delhi: Social activist and anti corruption crusader Anna Hazare arrived in Delhi on Monday to stage his protest against the changes in the Land Acquisition Act. He is going to stage a two day protest at Jantar Mantar starting from Monday.
“The land ordinance is against the farmers. In an agriculturally dominated nation, when there is torture on farmers, then all the people should stand united,” Anna said.
Several Farmer organizations and social activist like Medha Patkar, are supporting Anna in his protest.
Anna is hopeful of getting support from Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal. Both leaders may join Anna in his protest. Interestingly at the same time Anna gave the condition, Rahul can join the protest but have to sit among the public not on the stage.
Hazare will meet Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Monday night. The meeting will take place at the New Maharashtra Sadan in Delhi.
