Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi on Monday tweeted, ‘Modi government oppressed the farmer – first black laws were re-enacted, but he forgot that when the farmer raises his voice, his voice resonates throughout the country. Join us through the Speak Up for Farmers campaign against exploitation of farmer brothers and sisters.
Modi government persecuted the farmer – first the black laws were run again, but they forgot that when the farmer raises his voice, his voice resonates throughout the country.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said, ‘Name farmers law but all the benefit of billionaire friends. How can farmer laws be made without talking to farmers? How can the interests of farmers be ignored in them? The government will have to listen to the farmers. Let us raise our voices together in support of farmers. With his tweet, he used the Speak Up for Farmers campaign hashtag.
Earlier on Saturday, Rahul Gandhi targeted the central government by sharing a picture. In the picture, a young elderly farmer is seen running poles. Sharing the picture, Rahul wrote, ‘It is a very sad photo. Our slogan was ‘Jai Jawan Jai Kisan’, but today the arrogance of Prime Minister Modi pitted the jawan against the farmer. it’s very dangerous.’
At the same time, representatives of the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee said, if the government is serious about the demands of the farmers, then they should talk. Joginder Singh, president of the Bharatiya Kisan Ekta Griha, said, “We will not withdraw from the border.” We demand that the government withdraw the agricultural laws. We accept nothing less than this.
