Congress to press for repealing 3 farm laws on day 1 of Parliament's Winter Session
Thursday, 25 November 2021 The Congress on Thursday decided it will press for repealing the three farm laws on the very first day of the upcoming Winter Session of Parliament besides seeking Rs 4 lakh compensation for the families of those who died of Covid-19. The decision was taken at a meeting of top party leaders chaired by Sonia Gandhi to discuss the Congress' strategy for the upcoming session.
In what could be defined as an embarrassing moment caught on camera for the grand old party, Congress’s flag fell on the ground when Sonia Gandhi tried to unfurl it. The occasion was the 137th foundation day of the party which was being celebrated at AICC headquarters in New Delhi.
