Rahul Gandhi leads Congress in protest of tractor fire


BanglaHunt Desk: Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi organized a huge tractor rally in protest of the Centre's proposed agriculture bill. Thousands of Congress workers in about 5,000 tractors attended the meeting through a road show from Moga in Punjab.

The meeting was attended by Congress MLAs, ministers and elders. Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and Navyojit Singh Sidhu were seen together at the meeting about 14 months later.

Event schedule

The public meeting started at 4 am on October 4 at Wal Badal Colony and ended at Jagraon, Chakra, Lakka and Manuka in Ludhiana. The next road show will start in Barnala Chowk town on October 5 and will go to Bhabanigarh. On October 8, Rahul Gandhi will address a public meeting at Dudhan Sadhe in Patiala. The Congress road show will then enter Haryana through the Pihova border.

Standing at the meeting on Sunday, Rahul Gandhi lashed out at the central government, saying, “I can guarantee that the agriculture bill will be scrapped on the day the Congress government comes to power at the Center.” I will throw these three black laws in the dustbin. The Prime Minister thinks that the farmers are happy with this law. Then why are they taking the movement? If this bill is in the interest of the farmers, then why was it not disclosed in Parliament?

From the grassroots MPs in the Rajya Sabha to the Congress leadership, everyone has protested against the Centre's proposed agriculture bill. Even Akali Dal minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal resigned in protest of the agriculture bill. There have been various protests all over India.
