Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday said discussions on farm laws won’t do and these legislations must be repealed.
After participating in the Kisan Sansad with leaders of 12 opposition parties, minus TMC and AAP, Gandhi said, “We have come here to extend solidarity to the agitating farmers. The black farm laws must be repealed; there is no need for a discussion on these laws. These must go.”
Gandhi said the opposition is not being allowed to raise issues in Parliament but would continue to fight.
“PM narendra Modi has entered everyone’s phone through Pegasus. We want a discussion on the snooping and they are not allowing. We will continue with our demands,” said Gandhi.
He was accompanied to Jantar Mantar by senior opposition leaders of Shiv Sena (Sanjay Raut), NC (Hasnain Masoodi), CPM (Emalaram Kareem), CPI (Binoy Viswam), RSP (NK Premchandran), among others.
Congress MPs from Punjab Ambika Soni, Manish Tewari, Gurjeet Aujla, Amar Singh, Partap Bajwa and Haryana Congress MP Deepender Hooda were also present.
Congress media head Randeep Surjewala was also there, so was AICC general secretary organisation KC Venugopal.
