The Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi is back in action after mysteriously disappearing 57 days ago. Rahul is set to meet farmer today ahead of the mega rally planned on Sunday. He will make his first public appearance since his sabbatical that left Congress leaders lost for words trying to explain Rahul Gandhi’s decision to take a break from politics.
Congress is planning ‘Kisan-Khet Mazdoor’ rally on Sunday to galvanise protests against the changes being brought in the UPA’s land law. The Narendra Modi government’s new land acquisition law has created a furore in the parliament.
Rahul had visited Bhatta Parsaul village in 2011 and launched a ‘padyatra’ against forcible acquisition of farmers’ land. The movement led to the passage of Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013.
