In one of the rare incidences that would ever had happened in the parliament was Rahul Gandhi’s driving tractor on the parliament premises. Mr. Gandhi drove tractor to register his protest against the three egregious farm bills and to mark the Congress’ full support to ongoing protest against the bills.

While addressing the media the former Congress chief said “I’ve brought farmers’ message to Parliament. They (Modi government) are suppressing farmers’ voices, not letting a discussion take place in Parliament. They’ll have to repeal the black laws. Entire country knows these laws favour 2-3 big businessmen. Mr Gandhi further added “As per the government, farmers are very happy and those (protesting farmers) sitting outside are terrorists. But in reality, farmers’ rights are being snatched away: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.”

Mr. Gandhi also tweeted “If you force (farmers) to sell the land, then the tractor will run in Parliament – we will grow the crops of truth! Withdraw the anti-agriculture law” in Hindi.

For the unversed, farmers across the nation have been protesting against the farm bills since November last year demanding abolition of the farm bills and a new law bonding minimum support price (MSP).

Bhartiya Janta Party, the other hand, termed the protest by the congress as ‘acting’ and alleged the party of hacking the farmers’ movement.

BJP MP Vinay Sahasrabuddhe while counterattacking the congress’ protest said, “Rahul Gandhi is playing politics. Farmers are being used as a political tool. The centre has said if there are issues with the laws it is ready to rework them. They are ready for talks”.

The parliament has been adjourned many a times since the monsoon session was commenced on July 19, over the farm laws and Pegasus snooping controversy among various issues.

The opposition has united for the abrogation of the farm laws which will, according to farmers, end the mandi (wholesale market) system and MSP.
