Farm Bills: Congress begins nationwide protest
The Congress will begin its nearly two-month-long nationwide agitation from today, September 24, against the Centre for passing the farm bills during the monsoon session of Parliament.
Senior Congress leader AK Antony, in a meeting, had said, “The Congress is launching an agitation against the government for passing the anti-farmer and anti-people laws.”
Senior Congress leader Ahmad Patel who was also present in the meeting, said, “The government has destroyed the democratic system. The agricultural bills are neither in the interest of the state government nor the farmers. We raised our voice against this in Parliament will now take to the streets.”
He said the decision has been taken under the leadership of interim party president Sonia Gandhi and party leader Rahul Gandhi.
