अगर खेत बेचने पर मजबूर करोगे, तो ट्रैक्टर संसद में चलेगा- सत्य की फ़सल उगाकर रहेंगे!

Speaking to media, Rahul Gandhi said, “I have brought farmers’ message to Parliament. They (Government) are suppressing voices of farmers and not letting a discussion take place in Parliament.”
He said that they’ll have to repeal these black laws. “Entire country knows for whose benefit this (three farm laws) is being done. This is not in favour of farmers and the government will have to withdraw these three black farm laws,” he added.
The Delhi Police then detained Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala and IYC national President Srinivas B.V. along with scores of party workers.
Rahul Gandhi, Congress and several opposition parties have been demanding withdrawal of three farm laws.
Thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana and Western Uttar Pradesh have been protesting against the three farm laws since November 26 last year. Farmers have been demanding withdrawal of these farm laws and ensuring MSP to their produce. — IANS
