New Delhi, Dec 20 (PTI) Congress on Sunday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “silence” over the farmers’ agitation against the new agricultural laws at the Center and asked that he mourn the death of 33 protesters so far. Why didn’t you. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, while bowing to the farmers who lost their lives during the movement, said that the struggle and sacrifice of the farmers will definitely bring color. He said in a tweet, “The struggle and sacrifice of farmers will definitely bring color! Salutes and tributes to the peasant brothers and sisters. Congress spokesperson Shama Mohammed told reporters that 33 farmers lost their lives during the agitation and besides agitating farmers’ organizations, Congress is also celebrating Tribute Day on Sunday. He questioned, “(But) why is our Prime Minister silent?” Why is Mr. Amit Shahji silent and why is Yogi Adityanath silent? Why did Prime Minister Modi not utter a word? Why is our Prime Minister silent? Our Annadata is sitting on the borders of Delhi with his wife and children in the bitter cold, but our Home Minister Amit Shah does not have time to meet him but time to go to (West) Bengal. “He said that the entire” ruthlessness “of the government is being displayed because lakhs of farmers are waiting for justice. The Congress spokesperson alleged that the Prime Minister had time to visit religious places but no time to mourn the death of farmers. He said, “Where is the sympathy of the Prime Minister?” I request the Prime Minister to go there and meet them … They should give justice to these farmers and withdraw these black laws and bring in new forms of legislation in consultation with farmers, opposition parties and other stakeholders. “It is noteworthy that thousands of farmers have been camping on the borders of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh bordering Delhi for almost four weeks. Most of these farmers are from Punjab and Haryana. The agitating farmers are demanding withdrawal of three new agricultural laws implemented by the central government. The Congress spokesperson also accused the state government of Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government of colluding and suppressing the case in the alleged gang rape and death of a 19-year-old girl in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district. He said that the CBI has stated in its charge sheet that the girl was gang-raped and murdered. The Congress leader said that despite this, Prime Minister Modi, Shah and Adityanath are silent on this subject.
