Congress is planning to celebrate 15 January as ‘Farmers Rights Day’!
If the Congress had strived for farmers’ rights when they were in power for nearly 55 years, then the plight of farmers would not have been so miserable!
New Delhi – A plea filed in the Supreme Court has claimed that the ongoing protest by farmers against the new farm laws is causing a daily loss of 3500 crore Rupees to the exchequer. Rishabh Sharma has filed the plea demanding that the farmers should be moved away from the borders of Delhi, where they have been protesting for close to one and a half months.
- The petition says, ‘Road blockades and protests are a violation of the guiding principles issued by the Supreme Court in the Shaheen Bagh case’. The court had issued an order on 16th and 17th Dec saying that the farmers should protest peacefully. However the petition claims that in Punjab several telephone towers were vandalised.
- The Congress is planning to celebrate 15 January as ‘Farmers Rights Day’! On this day the party leaders across the country are going to march to their respecttive state’s Rajbhavan.
