“Rahul’s Paradise, Fake Gandhis”,BJP slams Congress over Farm Law protest

New Delhi: BJP swooped at Congress for protesting over the country’s new farm laws when the Centre already had moved to cancel them. A bill to repeal the three laws was passed by both the houses at Parliament today. The President is expected to give the approval any moment.

On the first day of the winter session of parliament, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and other party leaders had sloganeering in front of Mahatma Gandhi’s statues outside the parliament building.

BJP slamming Congress said that the protest was fake.

“If the ‘Fake Gandhis’ think they can fool Indians by protesting in front of Mahatma Gandhi’s statue, they are living in Rahul’s Paradise. Such is the political bankruptcy of Congress; they are protesting against the farm laws that are being already being repealed in parliament,” the Karnataka BJP tweeted on its official handle.

Congress held banners which stated that “We demand repeal of black farm laws.”

After nearly a year of protest by farmers, especially from Punjab and Haryana, Prime Minister Narendra Modi this month announced the centre would cancel the three farm laws. A bill to cancel the laws was passed today.

The farmers have, however, not withdrawn their protest. They have been asking for a law to ensure minimum support price, or MSP.

The opposition parties and some farmer leaders have criticized the move as coming a bit too late. They see the assembly election in Uttar Pradesh early next year as having given an effect on PM Modi’s climb down on the farm laws. A large section of farmers in UP have been protesting against the laws too.

The Congress, meanwhile, was in for more embarrassment as three parties abstained from the Parliament strategy meeting convened by it. These included the Aam Aadmi Party, the Trinamool Congress and the party’s Maharashtra ally, the Shiv Sena.
