Social activist Anna Hazare on Wednesday took the fight against land acquisition bill to the parliament by holding farmers rally near parliament building.
Addressing the rally he asked if the government says that ‘we have brought a good law for farmers’. “But if it is good why have people walked all the way (from villages) to protest.”
This is the wakeup call for the government which had promised to give power to the people. But nothing has been done, he rued.
This government is killing democracy by bringing this change in the bill. They are now worried about the industrialists and businessmen and not farmers, Hazare said.
Hazare announced formation a national committee and said that “we will do such rally and padyatras in villages to make people aware of the ordinance and how it is going to affect our lives.”
National committee will also chalk out jail bharo andolan across the country, it was declared.
“Sharabi ke nashe se bhi bada nasha hai satta ki nasha,” the social reformer said about the power intoxication. “But they are not aware that this jansansad is bigger than sansad (parliament).”
Reminding the Modi administration of the fate of the Manmohan Singh government he said “the previous government got the reply from people when they were involved in corruption. We will tell this government as well. Those who do not think about the country and farmers, they have no right to be in power,” he said.
“I will fight against it (land bill)” Hazare declared to the thunderous applause from the farmers gathered at parliament street in New Delhi.
