Synopsis:
Addressing thousands of Congress workers, Shri Rahul Gandhi said that the BJP and its Core Team were harming the interest of the farmers through these three anti-farmer Agricultural Laws.

The presence of Shri Rahul Gandhi and Smt. Priyanka Gandhi charged up thousands of Congress workers, under the leadership of Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ch. Anil Kumar, when they gheraoed the Raj Niwas today, demanding the repeal of the three anti-farmer Agricultural Laws, arbitrarily passed by the Modi Government at the Centre, without any discussions with the farmers and the Opposition parties.

Addressing thousands of Congress workers, Shri Rahul Gandhi said that the BJP and its Core Team were harming the interest of the farmers through these three anti-farmer Agricultural Laws. He said that these laws have not been made to help the farmers but to destroy them, as they are meant only to help and benefit big Corporates.

Shri Rahul Gandhi warned that the Central Government will have to repeal the Agricultural Laws. He said that the Congress party was standing by the farmers to protect their interest, and will continue to support them, till the anti-farmer laws are rolled back.

Besides Shri Rahul Gandhi, Smt. Priyanka Gandhi and Ch. Anil Kumar, prominent others who participated in the gherao were AICC In-charge of Delhi Shri Shakti Singh Gohil, AICC general secretary Shri K.C.Venugopal, Ex-MPs Shri Ramesh Kumar, Smt. Krishna Tirath and Shri Udit Raj, all DPCC vice presidents, Delhi Ministers, Ex MLAs, DCC and BCC presidents, Municipal Councillors, Ex MCs, Frontal Organisations, Youth Congress, Mahila Congress, Sewa Dal, NSUI, Cells and Departments and thousands of Congress workers.

The Congress workers, at the direction of Congress president Smt. Sonia Gandhi, gheraoed Raj Bhawans across the country today, demanding the repeal of the three black Agricultural Laws, as the insensitive Modi Government seemed to be unaffected by the determined protest by the farmers on the borders of Delhi, braving the freezing cold for over the past 50 days. Ch Anil Kumar said that over 60 farmers have become martyrs to the cause, but the farmers would not back out from their protest, as they would not allow the Modi Government to hand over the farm sector to a few Corporates through these draconian Agricultural Laws. He said that eight rounds of discussions with the Modi Government Ministers have yielded little in terms of accepting the demands of the farmers, to make these discussions pointless exercises.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that the Congress party has always stood by the toiling masses, and it was committed to supporting the farmers who feed the masses in the country. He said that the farmers had worked non-stop even during the Corona pandemic, when the entire country was under a lockdown, to ensure that there would be no shortage of agricultural products.
