Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will address an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) rally against the BJP's land acquisition bill at Jantar Mantar and will also lead a march to Parliament on April 22.

This will be the first protest march undertaken by Mr. Kejriwal in his second stint as Delhi Chief Minister. He had earlier made a brief appearance alongside his one-time mentor Anna Hazare during the latter's rally against the NDA government's proposed amendment on land bill.

"It has been decided that he will address the rally and might also lead a march to Parliament with other senior party leaders. The finer details are still being worked out," a party spokesman said on Friday.

In a resolution passed by the party's National Council on March 28, AAP had decided to hold a protest against the Bill outside Parliament on April 22 and had formed a committee to address the issue.
