Sonia Gandhi leads massive opposition march to President's House against Modi govt’s Land Bill

Congress president Sonia Gandhi led over 100 leaders from eleven opposition parties as they marched in a massive show of strength against the controversial Land Acquisition Bill to President's House in New Delhi on Tuesday. The march started from the Mahatma Gandhi statue outside Parliament and is expected to end with a memorandum to President Pranab Mukherjee against the amendments proposed by the Narendra Modi government to a similar bill passed by the UPA in 2013. Other leaders who walked with Sonia included former prime minister Manmohan Singh, CPM's Sitaram Yechury, CPI's D Raja, Trinamool Congress leader Derek O'Brien and Dinesh Trivedi, Samajwadi Party's Ramgopal Yadav, DMK's Kanimozhi, INLD's Dushyant Chautala and the RJD's Prem Chand Gupta.
