Landless poor march to Delhi. Then what?

Faced with 25,000 landless people from across the country marching up to parliament on October 29 to register their protest, the United Progressive Alliance (upa) government announced the creation of a committee on "State Agrarian Relations and the Unfinished Task in Land Reforms'. The union minister of rural development, Raghuvansh Prasad Singh, made this announcement at the Ramlila Ground, where the demonstrators were held back by the police to prevent them from marching on to Parliament House.

Singh will head the committee
