New Delhi: Congress MPs staged a protest inside the Parliament complex in support of protesting farmers and demanded that the three agriculture laws be withdrawn. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and other leaders of the party participated in the protest. Congress MPs gathered outside Mahatma Gandhi’s statue in Parliament complex and raised slogans against the government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Carrying placards and hoardings, the MPs also raised slogans in support of the farmers and their demands.

Congress has been demanding the repeal of the three farm laws, which the farmers are against alleging that these legislations will end the mandi and MSP procurement systems and leave them at the mercy of big corporates. The government has rejected these apprehensions as misplaced.
