Bharat Bandh on September 27: Congress to extend full support to farmers' agitation
Congress party has decided to extend full support to farmers’ Bharat Bandh on September 27. Rahul Gandhi has been at the forefront in support of the farmer’s agitation from the very beginning
The Congress party has decided to extend full support to the farmers’ Bharat Bandh on September 27 against the three farm laws. Former party president Rahul Gandhi has been at the forefront in support of the farmer’s agitation from the very beginning. He has also termed the farmers as “brave”.
Rahul Gandhi took to his Twitter handle to share a picture from farmers’ agitation. He captioned the image as: "Fearless at the forefront... he is the fortune maker of India."
Congress newly appointed in-charge of agitation committee, Digvijaya Singh said, “Kisan Mahapanchayat has proposed Bharat Bandh on September 27. All the non-BJP parties should try to make it a grand success.”
Earlier on Sunday, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said that the farmers are the voice of the country.
The Kisan Mahapanchayat in Muzaffarnagar on Sunday, turned out to be a massive show of strength of farmer unity as over 300 farmer unions from 15 states participated under the aegis of the Sanyukt Kisan Morcha (SKM) and reiterated their resolve to continue with the protest.
The farmers unanimously gave a call for a complete Bharat Bandh on September 27 in protest against the three contentious farm laws.
The farmer leaders made it extremely clear that if the government did not accept their demands, they would campaign in the 2022 Assembly Elections in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand against the ruling BJP. The agitators even threatened to continue their protest until the next Lok Sabha elections in 2024.
