Gandhi Returns to India to Lead Fight Against Modi Land Bill

Updated on

Rahul Gandhi, the heir to India’s most famous political family, sought to rally farmers against the government’s land acquisition bill as he looks to revive his party’s popularity following a mysterious two-month absence.

At a rally on Sunday before more than 1,000 farmers in New Delhi, Gandhi accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of giving away farmland to industrialists who supported him during last year’s election. The rally sets the stage for an acrimonious parliament session starting today.
