Annoyed over the suspension of former Minister Natwar Singh by Congress party following indictment by Pathak Authority in the oil-for-food scam, Rajasthan Kisan Sangarsh Samiti will hold a
rally on August 23 to express their solidarity with the beleaguered leader.
More than one lakh people of the Jat community would attend the rally, to be addressed by various leaders including Natwar, Samiti convenor Ranmal Singh told reporters in Jaipur.
The rally would take sankalp (oath) to warn the Congress party that 'injustice' has been done to the former Minister and the Samiti would not tolerate it and give a befitting reply at the elections, Ranmal said.
Some of the Congress leaders were working on the directive of American imperialism against Natwar, he alleged.
Rajasthan Jat Mahasabha spokesman Tarachand Choudhary said that they would offer full support to the proposed rally in the state capital, which he said would be historic.
Every Jat and Kisan would back their leader Natwar and try to get justice from the Congress high command, Choudhary said.
