AAP to discuss farmer issues, Lokpal on Foundation Day

IANS | New Delhi |

The Aam Aadmi Party said there will be a special discussion on the issues of farmers and the Jan Lokpal Bill on the party’s fifth Foundation Day, which falls on Sunday, alongside talks on its journey so far.

“The condition of India’s farmers will be discussed in the context of the injustices being done to the farmers by the BJP-led Central government,” AAP leader Gopal Rai told the media here on Friday.

He said the party will celebrate its fifth Foundation Day on November 26 at the “same venue which saw the Lokpal Movement gain strength”, the Ramlila Maidan, in the presence of volunteers from across India.

“Jan Lokpal Bill will also be discussed, especially since the movement began at the same place. The Bill, which been passed by the Delhi Assembly, has been blocked by the Centre.

“AAP is the only party in Indian history to have established a national footprint within a short span of five years and is expanding rapidly across the country,” Rai said.

Representatives from 22 states will join the celebration.
