Activist Anna Hazare postpones 'padyatra' against Land Bill

New Delhi, March 18: Social activist Anna Hazare who was to begin his 'padyatra' at the end of this month has postponed his plans due to the schedule clashing with the field work of the farmers.

Hazare was supposed to begin his padyatra against the Centre's controversial Land Acquisition Bill. Hazare's representative said that farmers had voiced their concerns about the high temperatures in the Capital and also how the unseasonal rains had damaged their crops.

"The padyatra will be held after one or one and a half month. New dates will be announced later," Hazare's representative said.

Hazare was supposed to begin the padyatra on March 25 from the Sevagram village and it was scheduled to end at Ramlila Maidan, New Delhi.

Close to 20,000 farmers from 12 states were expected to join the march along with Hazare.

Hazare had recently urged the youth to join the padtyra and had said that 'if the land bill is passed in the Rajya Sabha, then the people will have to show that people's parliament is supreme.
