Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Dy CM Manish Sisodia today met Anna Hazare at Maharashtra Sadan and will join him on the stage tomorrow.
Accusing the Modi government of antipathy towards farmers, Anna Hazare today launched a two-day agitation against the controversial land acquisition ordinance here, coinciding with the commencement of the Budget session of Parliament.
77-year-old Hazare was joined by hundreds of supporters and Narmada Bachao movement activist Medha Patekar at Jantar Mantar and the activist said he will take the movement against the ordinance to each and every district of the country.
Hazare said he will not allow AAP or Congress to share stage with him at the protest venue and the two parties can join it as part of common people.
“How can you take away land without farmer’s consent. India is an agricultural country. The government must think about the farmers. The land ordinance is undemocratic,” Hazare said.
“The government cannot be indifferent to the farmers’ interest. This is government of people of India and not of England or America. It is the people who have made the government,” he said.
