New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas will be meeting veteran social activist Anna Hazare on Monday over the issue of Land Ordinance Bill.

However, the party is still undecided over joining the protest against the bill.

Hazare will sit on a protest at Jantar Mantar later in the day against the ordinance on Land Acquisition Bill.

Earlier on Sunday, he had called for the Land Ordinance Bill to be taken back, adding that the government should instead look out for ways to improve the condition of the farmers.

A group of farmers who began marching from Haryana's Palwal on Friday will join Hazare at the venue tomorrow to demand withdrawal of amendments to the Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013.

Hazare had earlier lashed out at the BJP-led government for removing provisions which provided taking the farmers' consent before acquiring their land.
