Freedom fighter and social activist, Anna Hazare will confront the Narendra Modi government over the Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013 Bill. On February 24, Anna Hazare will sit on a day long protest at Jantar Mantar in Delhi while noted activist Medha Patkar is expected to take part in the agitation too. Mr. Anna who has been strongly criticising the NDA government for the past few days over the Land Acquisition Bill which the government brought in the form of an ordinance. Anna feels the bill is completely against the interest of farmers and in favour of corporates.
The Maharashtra Aam Aadmi Party has extended its support to Anna's protest and is planning to launch a wing that addresses the problems of farmers. Meanwhile Anna Hazare aides said that he won't be attending Arvind Kejriwal's swearing ceremony scheduled on Saturday. Sources said, Kejriwal has personally called upon Anna for the taking oath ceremony but as the latter stays away from mainstream politics and political parties may not make it to Ramlila Maidan.
Anna Hazare's protests were the foundation for the fall of UPA government and his main agenda was the corruption and Lokpal bill. We have to see the consequences and impact of Anna Hazare's protest over the NDA government.
