Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Yogendra Yadav, who is leading the party's 'Jai Kisan Abhiyaan' campaign in Haryana, on Sunday had to face opposition from Indian National Lokdal (INLD) workers when he reached INLD chief Om Prakash Chautala's house to give salt packets.

Yadav, who has been heading the 'Jai Kisan Abhiyan' against the amendments made in the Land Acquisition Act, reached Sirsa on Sunday where he addressed AAP workers at Town Park. In the absence of INLD leaders the workers there refused to accept the salt packets.

Later he along with the hundreds of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers marched to Chautala house at Barnala Road to hand the salt packets.

INLD workers questioned on what basis was Yadav, who has been removed from AAP's political affairs committee, giving salt packets to others and said first he should sort out his party's internal disputes.

Meanwhile Yadav said that AAP stood by farmers as the amendments made in the Land Acquisition Act 2013 by BJP government were completely anti-farmer.

"We are giving salt to Lok Sabha MPs of Haryana, as it is a reminder to them that they eat food produced by the farmers and thus would have to stand up against the new amendments made in the Act," he added.

Attacking on the BJP government in the state and at the Centre, Yadav said, the party had promised 'Achhe Din' before the elections, something the party has completely forgotten.

He alleged that, every minister of Haryana has been giving statements routinely that they are well wishers of the farmers, but the Act was completely against the farmers.

Regarding AAP's internal disputes, Yadav said, "AAP has got full mandate in Delhi and has formed government, so it's possible little bit changes will take place. All will be well soon and every promise which the party made before the elections to the people of Delhi will be fulfiled."
