Veteran social activist Anna Hazare on Saturday said preparations have begun for his rally in Delhi on October 2 over the contentious Land Acquisition Bill and the implementation of the One Rank One Pension (OROP) for defence personnel.

“The preparations for the movement that we will start in Delhi on October 2 have started. Today I am going to Delhi, the I will go to Haryana to hold a ‘sabha’. Then there will be another ‘sabha’ in Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh,” said Hazare.

“Besides these, I will also go to Bihar and Chattisgarh and many other states to make people aware and ask them to arrive in Delhi on October 2,” he added.

Hazare had earlier said he would do anything to ensure that the One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme is implemented and added that mere assurance on the government’s part is not enough.
