Congress’ general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday addressed Kisan Mahapanchayat supporting protesting farmers in Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnor district. Referring Rahul Gandhi’s ‘hum do, hamare do’ remarks at Narendra Modi government, she alleged that all the three farm laws have not been brought in for the farmers but for PM’s capitalist friends.

Accusing PM Modi’s capitalist friends, she said his capitalist friends run media in this country. The elections are also run with the help of the same capitalist friends and the whole country has been given away to these capitalist friends, she said.

Addressing Kisan Mahapanchayat, Gandhi said farmers were ridiculed in Parliament and dubbed as traitors by ministers. PM Modi has given a new name ‘Aandolanjivi’ and ‘Parijivi’ to the protesting farmers while the BJP ministers called the farmers traitors.

Listing out the failures of Centre’s three farm laws, the UP Congress in-charge said the first law gives free hand to the corporate, the second law is designed to crush the existing APMC mandis – once private mandis take over the market while the third law facilitating contract farming is instrumental in subjecting the farmers to exploitation by the corporates.

Referring to the farmers protest against the farm laws at the Delhi borders, Gandhi said the farmer is standing to the government’s door demanding to repeal the farm laws while their sons are standing at the border of the country. She said the men who protect the country’s borders are sons of farmers.

Extending her support to the protesting farmers, Gandhi said each and every Congress worker is with the protesting farmers. She said the Prime Minister Narendra Modi can travel the world but cannot come to meet farmers who are just a few kilometres away from his residence. Raising farmers demand to repeal farm laws, she alleged that PM Modi does not have time to meet farmers.

After Priyanka Gandhi’s speech, a two-minute silence was observed for the farmers who died in the protest site. The farmer unions protesting against the centre’s farm laws have claimed that over 200 farmers have been died since November.
