Rahul Gandhi Stand with Farmers

Health, News, Politic, World Comments Off 5

Rahul Gandhi, whose party has extended full support to the peaceful Bharat Bandh, today reaffirmed his support to protesting farmers seeking withdrawal of three controversial farm laws that they allege will give power to private firms to take over the agriculture sector. The protest has been on for 10 months.

Farmers’ non-violent satyagraha is intact even today, but the exploitative government does not like this and that is why we have Bharat Bandh today,” posted Rahul Gandhi in Hindi in a Haiku-like tweet.

Government and private offices, educational and other institutions, shops, industries and commercial establishments will be closed across the country, the SKM said. However, demonstrators have insisted that emergency services won’t be affected.

Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait on Sunday said farmers are ready to protest for 10 years, but will not allow the “black” legislations to be implemented.
