Land Acquisition Bill: Vaiko and Kejriwal share stage with Anna Hazare
CM Arvind Kejriwal goes back to ‘guru’ Anna Hazare, pledges support
MDMK leader Vaiko joins Anna’s agitation against Land Bill
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal joined Anna Hazare on the second day of protest against the contentious land ordinance and shared the dais with the social activist at Jantar Mantar on Tuesday.

“The land acquisition ordinance is against farmers, against the poor, we oppose it,” Kejriwal said after he joined Hazare on the dais.

Though Hazare had earlier ruled out sharing stage with any politician, political leaders including CPI’s Atul Anjan and Vaiko of MDMK were among those sitting on the dais.

Hazare had earlier said that people from political parties were welcome to join the agitators but will not share the stage with him and made it clear that he would not allow any political colour to the agitation.

Yesterday, Hazare had said a ‘jail-bharo’ movement will be launched from the Ramlila Ground after carrying out a “padyatra” across the country for three-four months.

Accusing the government of only caring for corporates, Hazare said he will not relent till government withdraws the controversial ordinance.

“The political parties are of the country only. And, people running the government are also from the country. The people who suffer injustice are also from this country. And, so if farmers are meted out injustice and if everyone comes together to fight injustice, then what is the problem,” Hazare told reporters.
