Earlier, Rahul Gandhi, Ghulam Nabi Azad, and Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary visited Rashtrapati Bhavan on 24 December.
Rahul Gandhi submitted to President Ram Nath Kovind a memorandum of two crore signatures to repeal farm laws, against which farmers have been protesting on Delhi’s borders since last month.
Gandhi said, “I told the President that these agricultural laws are anti-farmer. The country has seen that farmers have stood up against these laws.”
Farmers have been protesting against the Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020 on the borders of Delhi since 26 November; Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Agricultural Services Act, 2020; And Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
