Tomorrow, on January 26, as the farmers’ proposed “Tractor Parade” would be entering the National Capital, Congress party has said that it would welcome the farmers’ tractor rally on the rally route to pledge solidarity with the farmers who have been demanding the repeal of the three farm laws.
Congress has asked its workers to welcome the rally at various points in Delhi.
Congress said the farm laws, if implemented in the present form, will be a total sell-out of the farm sector to a few chosen corporates supporting the BJP, therefore the farmers demand repeal of the laws.
President of the Delhi Congress unit Chowdhry Anil Kumar said, “The farmers have been protesting on the borders of Delhi for over the past 60 days, braving the bone-chilling cold weather, demanding the repeal of the anti-farmer laws, and over 100 farmers have already become martyrs to the cause, and I will personally welcome the tractor rally.”
He alleged that the Modi government seems to be unmoved by the plight of the farmers and adamant that it will not repeal the three laws after 11 rounds of talks with the farmers have produced no result as the government is firm on not repealing the laws and is just fooling the farmers by holding futile talks.
He said that the tractor rally will be a loud statement of the farmers’ anguish and anxiety.
