Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal will address a rally at Jantar Mantar today against the Centre’s proposed Land Acquisition Bill.

AAP had also planned a protest march to Parliament from Jantar Mantar, however, Delhi Police did not issue a permission for it as Section 144 is in place in New Delhi due to the ongoing sessions in the Parliament.

The rally is expected to attract a crowd of over 10,000, including farmers from Jharkhand, Bundelkhand, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Haryana, Odisha and Poorvanchal belts of Uttar Pradesh.

AAP leader Sanjay Singh berated the central government and declared that AAP will protest strongly against the Land Acquisition Bill.

“The BJP says that they have made necessary changes in the Act. This is nothing but a joke. What compelled the BJP to change the provisions of the Act, just after nine months in power. This is nothing, but a move to benefit its industrialist friends,” said Singh.

Earlier, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi had tried to use the sensitive issue of Land Bill to gain political mileage after coming back from a 56-day-long sabbatical.

AAP leader Kumar Vishwas, ahead of the prospective rally, cut a remark on Rahul Gandhi, and said that the Gandhi scion is only trying to gather political mileage from the issue.
