The participants of the march were brave during the last day of marching in direction to Delhi and kept on walking even on the fourth day of the Padyatra. Although they were tired and had just one meal a day they mastered the double distance in a laudable way. In the early evening, the participants of the Padyatra finally arrived at Jantar Mantar where they will stay for the night.
Tomorrow is an important day for Ekta Parishad and all the organizations concerning Land Rights: Yesterday evening the government promised to representatives of Ekta Parishad that they will give a response to the demands of the Satyagrahrisin the next 48 hours. Ekta Parishad's main issues and demands are:
- Reconstitute and reactivate the National Land Reforms Council- Introduce the Homestead Bill 2013 in the Parliament- Initiate steps to approve the Land Reforms Policy 2013- Initiate steps to strengthen the implementation of Forest Rights Act 2006
The government should soon initiate steps for a discussion on land-reform by activating the National Land Reforms Council.
