Upping its ante against the Centre's "anti-farmers" agrarian policy and Land Acquisition Bill, the AAP will hold a rally on Wednesday.
The rally will start from Jantar Mantar, where Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will address his supporters. The Delhi Police has reportedly denied the permission for the march to the Parliament.
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.
Reports say AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal has asked the Delhi Police to keep the media away from the protest site.
BJP pursuing anti-farmer policies, obliged by industrial houses: AAP
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is pursuing the anti-farmer policies because they have been obliged by the industrial houses.
"The BJP government pursuing anti-farmer policies because they have been obliged by the industrial houses. It portrays that BJP wants to help the corporate who eventually helped them during the elections, which is why they are trying to force this anti-farmer ordinance (land ordinance) as law," said AAP spokesperson, Ashutosh.
"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.
