Congress Launches Campaign Against Farm Bills, Urges People to boost Voice in Support of Farmers

The Congress on Saturday launched a ’Speak up for farmers’ campaign on social media protesting the farm bills, with Rahul Gandhi urging people to boost their voice against what he described was the Narendra Modi government’s ”exploitation” of farmers. The three bills were gone by both houses of Parliament during the Monsoon session and are awaiting presidential assent.
Let us raise our voices together against the atrocities and exploitation of farmers by the Modi government,” Gandhi said during a tweet in Hindi. ”Join the Speak Up For Farmers campaign through your video,” he said, tagging a video during which the party involved the withdrawal of the bills.
The Congress, on its official Twitter handle, alleged that the agriculture bills gone by the govt during a ”highly undemocratic manner are nothing but an attack on our farmers and an effort to rework agriculture into another revenue stream for his or her crony capitalist friends”. along side many other opposition parties, it’s claimed that the bills will harm the interest of farmers and benefit the corporates, a claim denied by the govt .
The Centre has asserted the bills are going to be beneficial for farmers and increase their income.
