"Jail Bharo" Agitation has been launched by Noted social activist Anna Hazare against the Maharashtra Government's "illegal" decision to condone the irregularities in the Lavasa Lake City Project coming up in the outskirts of Pune.

According to Hazare ""The state government's decision to regularize irregularities in Lavasa project is akin to daylight robbery of tribals whose lands have been illegally acquired for the project," "As per law, land of tribals cannot be transferred. But in case of Lavasa, poor people have been forced to bear the cost of providing luxury for the super rich," he said.

The Lavasa Lake City Project, near Pune has been in the news recently for the alleged irregularities in the land acquisition. Maharashtra Revenue Minister Narayan Rane had recently stated that there was nothing "fishy" in the clearance of Lavasa Lake Projet.

Rane, who had earlier said that the state government has decided to compound irregularities in land acquisition for the controversial project, . added that ""The decision was taken by me keeping in view factors like the Rs 48,000 crore investment proposed and employment opportunities for over 96,000 people in the project," .

Following the invitation of Hazare, the Governor will visit Ralegan Sidhi. Hazare met the Governor at Raj Bhavan last month The Governor will inaugurate a watershed recharge project, and visit the watershed areas at Patthardara and Kohni. The Governor of Maharashtra, K Sankaranarayanan is expected to visit Hazare's village in Parner Tehsil of Ahmednagar district tomorrow.
