Ekta Parishad to launch major agitation for Jal, Jangal aur Jameen

Gwalior, MP, May 23 (UNI) Rashtriya Ekta Parishad Founder Rajgopal PV today said that a major agitation would be launched for ‘Jal, Jangal aur Jameen (water, forest and land)’ in 2018.
“The then United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government had accepted our 10-point agenda, which included land reforms, in Agra in 2012. However, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance regime tried to amend it once again. The Parishad is launching a Yatra from Champaran in Bihar to demand implementation of land reforms in 2017,” Mr Rajgopal told media here.
“A fresh agitation would be launched in 2018 during which nearly 10 lakh people are expected to take part. A year later, a Yatra comprising 150 people would be taken out from India to Geneva in Switzerland where development model and its adverse consequences would be discussed,” he said.
Mr Rajgopal said that he met Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently and communicated his willingness to play a role for tackling Naxal problem in social context. Besides, he held deliberations with the premier on land reforms and problems concerning tribal folk including bringing a bill in Union Cabinet on land reforms of 2012.
He pointed out that the BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh Government had agreed to all its demand when the UPA was in power at the Centre. He said that the state government has fulfilled some of its promises but it still has to take concrete action on land reforms.
