Congress supports Bharat Bandh

News Desk: Congress was against the farm bills from the very beginning. So leaders Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Randeep Surjewala backed the Bharat Bandh, called by various farmer groups on Friday. The trio took to Twitter to slam the Modi government’s anti-agricultural policies.

Mr Gandhi tweeted with the hashtag ‘I Support Bharat Bandh’ “A flawed GST destroyed MSMEs. The new agriculture laws will enslave our farmers”

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra also tweeted with the same hashtag “Neither will they get the price nor respect. Farmers will become labourers in their own land. BJP’s agriculture bills are a reminder of the East India Company rule. We will not allow this injustice to happen”

In a video message the Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said “Farmers are protesting with Bharat Bandh. Their livelihood is being snatched away and the Modi government has attacked their farms. There is chaos everywhere. Modi ji swears by farmers, but stays true to his friendship with crony capitalist friends. The Congress and farmers will struggle together and will never allow the Modi government to mortgage farmers and agriculture at the doorstep of crony capitalists”
