AAP's rally against Land Bill: 'Media should not get too close to Arvind Kejriwal'

New Delhi, April 22: Upping its ante against the Centre's "anti-farmers" agrarian policy and Land Acquisition Bill, the AAP will hold a rally on Wednesday.

As pre an Indiatoday report, "Aam Aadmi Party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's office has asked the Delhi Police to ensure that CM is out of bounds for media at rally at Jantar Mantar on Wednesday."

Kejriwal's anti-Land Bill rally: 'Media should not get too close to Arvind Kejriwal'.
The request was reportedly made verbally on Tuesday evening.

The rally will start from Jantar Mantar, where Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will address his supporters, but he won't be a part of the march towards the Parliament.

Lashing out at the Centre, party leader Sanjay Singh said the party will protest against the "deadly Act" for the farmers tooth and nail. The party said farmers from Chhatisgarh, Jharkhand, Punjab, Haryana, Odisha, the Bundelkhand and Poorvanchal belt of Uttar Pradesh will also participate in the rally to protest against the 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," Singh.

Taking a jibe at Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi, Kumar Vishwas, who had contested against the Gandhi scion from Amethi, said he should first explain how Robert Vadra benefitted in Haryana.

"He has come back from a vacation and his entertainment tour. The leader has been talking about the welfare of the farmers," Vishwas said.
