Congress Observes ‘Kisan Adhikar Divas’ Against farm Laws, Gheraos Raj Bhawans Across Country

The Congress party which has supported the farmers protesting against the farm laws, is a part of ‘Speak Up For Kisan Adhikar’ campaign. The Congress has observed Kisan Adhikar Divas on Friday and has asked all its state units to organise protests around Raj Bhavans in all states. Rahul Gandhi while leading protest outside Delhi Raj Bhawan, said, “Farm laws are not to help farmers, but to finish them. BJP govt will have to withdraw farm laws; Congress will not relent till these laws are repealed,” He further said, “The Narendra Modi government earlier tried to take away the land of farmers, when it brought the land acquisition Act and the Congress party stopped them at that time. Now the BJP and their two-three friends are once again attacking the farmers and have brought these three farm laws.” The Congress leaders on January 9 held a virtual meeting and decided to become more aggressive against the Centre and to ‘hit the ground’ over the farm laws. Meanwhile The ninth round of discussion between farmers demanding repeal of the three agriculture laws and the centre — held days after the Supreme Court stayed their enactment “until further orders” — ended today with no progress towards ending the stalemate. “It was a 120 per cent failure. We suggested that the government remove the changes made to the Essential Commodities Act instead of scrapping it altogether. But the Agriculture Minister has not said anything on this,” farmer leader Dr Darshanpal said.
