UP Elections : Kisan Mahapanchayat in Gautam Budh Nagar

Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections just a year away, Congress is all set to up the ante against Chief Minister Mayawati over land acquisition for infrastructure projects in the SP'>BSP-ruled state.

Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi will take up the cause of farmers, whose land have been acquired, at a kisan mahapanchayat next week in Gautam Buddh Nagar district.

According to sources, the party was first planning this public meeting in Bhatta-Parsaul, the village where Gandhi had taken on Mayawati Government for its land acquisition for Yamuna Expressway. He had heard the villagers and had even got arrested in the middle of the night. The administration, however, has not given permission. Now, the party is looking at the option of holding the mahapanchayat at Jewar, another village in the district about 14 kilometres from Bhatta-Parsaul.
