All India youth congress launches its KISAN SATYAGRAH from Bhatta Parsaul to Parliament in the presence of Sh Jairam Ram Ramesh, Oscar Fernandes, Raja Warring and thousands of youth congress workers. This yatra begins on 13th March and will conclude on today at the Jantar Mantar in New Delhi and then lay siege on the parliament against the land acquisition bill. This bill is anti farmer with the amendments which Modi government has done in it. After the passing of this bill the farmer has no say in his own land selling which the government is doing to just oblige certain big corporate houses alleged Congress.
Hundreds of Youth Congress workers led by MP Raj Babbar and party leader Randeep Surjewala marched towards parliament raising slogans against the bill and the government. "The BJP is anti-farmer and it stands exposed today, farmers and Congress will win this fight," Surjewala said. The contentious land bill has smoothly sailed through the Lok Sabha due to the NDA's brute majority, but the government is facing stiff resistance in the Rajya Sabha with the opposition determined to stall its passage. The Lok Sabha had last week passed the Land Acquisition Bill of the BJP-led NDA Government at the Centre via a voice vote. Nine amendments to the bill had been adopted. Several other parties including the Janata Dal (United) and Lalu Prasad Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) have also opposed the ruling BJP's Land Acquisition Bill.
