‘Farm laws not just an assault on farmers…’: Rahul Gandhi slams Centre

Rahul Gandhi lashed out at the Modi government over the three farm laws that have led to massive protests by farmers. The Congress leader alleged that the Modi government was working for the benefit of a few crony capitalists that he alleged were close to the Prime Minister. He said that the three new laws will destroy agriculture in the country and it will eventually also impact the middle class as they will end up having to pay higher prices. He also said that the agriculture sector was the last that was protected from the monopoly of the corporate and that has also now been taken over. Rahul Gandhi’s attack comes as farmers have been protesting against the three laws passed by the Centre and have demanded withdrawal of the laws. The government insists that the farmers are being misled by a few political parties and that the farm laws will benefit the farmers of the country. Watch the full video for all the details.

Farmers are smarter than PM, govt cannot fool them: Rahul Gandhi

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over the farm laws row said that it is not an assault on farmers but on the middle class and every youngster of the country, who is not able to get a job. Gandhi further said that farmers are smarter than Prime Minister Narendra Modi and government can neither tire them out nor fool them. "The rice, wheat you (middle class) buy comes at the rate you purchase because of APMC and the agricultural system. This is not an assault on farmers but on the middle class and on every single youngster in the country, who is not able to get a job. Realise that your independence is being taken away. The government in its arrogance believes that they can tire out the farmers and fool them, you can neither tire them nor fool them. Farmers are smarter than the Prime Minister. There is only one solution, government will have to take back the farm laws, there is no other solution," said Rahul Gandhi during a press conference on January 19.
