Cong to intensify protests against BJP govt on land ordinance

Stepping up its offensive against the Centre over the controversial Land Acquisition ordinance issue, Congress on Friday said that it will be staging a dharna at the Jantar Mantar here on February 25 to protest against the BJP government’s “anti-farmer” move.

The announcement was made by Congress spokesman Ajoy Kumar, who said that party’s Vice-President Rahul Gandhi is expected to lead the stir.

Former Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh will address a Kisaan Mahapanchayat on Sunday in Chauroli village of District Gautambudh Nagar, he said.

He had earlier addressed a similar Mahapanchayat at Bhatta-Parsaul, Mirzapur and Gharbara.
