New Delhi | The leaders of all opposition parties stand united with farmers in ensuring their good future, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said on Friday and called for a farm loan waiver.
Addressing a gathering of protesting farmers at Jantar Mantar, he said no one will be able to silence the voice of farmers and youth. If the Indian government insults them, then they will ensure its removal, Gandhi said.
He added that the farmers were not seeking a “free gift” from the government by asking for a farm loan waiver. They were only asking for what’s due to them, the Congress chief asserted. “If this government can waive Rs 3.5 lakh crore loans of 15 big industrialists, why can’t the loans of crores of farmers in the country be waived?” he asked.
