Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal joined activist Anna Hazare at Jantar Mantar on Tuesday in the protest against the Modi government’s land Ordinance.

This is for the first time Anna and Kejriwal are seen together after parting ways three years back when Kejriwal decided to indulge into active politics and formed Aam Aadmi Party. Hazare had refused to support Kejriwal’s political ambitions.

Also, this is Kejriwal’s first protest after becoming the chief minister of Delhi.

Calling the land ordinance ‘anti farmers’, Hazare along with other social activists and several thousands of farmers had launched the protest on Monday. Hazare, however, had said that he would not allow AAP leaders to share the stage with him during his protest.

The Land Acquisition Act, 2013 stipulates mandatory consent of at least 70 percent of land owners for acquiring land for Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects and 80 per cent for acquiring land for private companies.

In December 2014, the government had promulgated the ordinance making significant changes in the Land Act including removal of consent clause for acquiring land for five areas - industrial corridors, PPP projects, rural infrastructure, affordable housing and defence.
