Chandigarh, Aug 7 (UNI) The Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) would organise a protest march against the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) policy of the UPA government in New Delhi on August 9.

INLD Secretary General and Rajya Sabha MP Ajay Singh Chautala would lead the protest to be organised on the 'Quit India Day' at Jantar Mantar near Parliament House.

In a statement issued here today, Mr Ajay Singh Chautala said thousands of affected farmers from districts of Gurgaon, Faridabad, Jhajjar and Sonepat would participate in the protest march.

He alleged that the Hooda government was bent upon ruining the farmers for benefiting some select big business houses. ''All the focus of the government seems to be on how to benefit the bigger business houses like Reliance and how to exploit the poor peasantry.'' The Government, he charged, was acquiring the agricultural land at paltry price and handing it over to the big companies for developing SEZs, which had ruined the small farmers and a large sections of working class dependent on the farming sector.
