Jaipur: Aam Aadmi Party will hold protests and rallies across Rajasthan against the Centre's new land acquisition bill, senior party leader Yogendra Yadav on Sunday said here.
The protests will be held early this week and AAP district chiefs will gift a 'namak ki thaili' (a pouch of salt) to the elected members their Assembly and Parliament reminding them of promises they made to farmers and public before winning the recent elections, Yadav said.
"AAP is strongly against the land acquisition ordinance as it will not be suitable to farmers and others," he said.
"AAP will remind all such elected representatives of BJP that they have come to power after eating/consuming their (farmers) salt, now do not disobey that salt-oath," he said.
After AAP's landslide victory in Delhi, it became centre of hope for "alternative politics" in the country, Yadav said, adding neither the BJP nor the Congress was a part of alternative politics.
On a question whether he had any differences with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejariwal, Yadav said, "No and why... What ever creeping in media (specially electronic) was their own... None is related to me or anyone else at the party level."
