Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi in his protest against the three farm laws, surprised many as he drove a tractor to reach parliament.
Extending support to farmers who have been agitating against the new agricultural laws, the Wayanad MP told media persons, “I have brought farmers’ message to Parliament. They (The government) are suppressing the voices of farmers and not letting a discussion take place in Parliament. They will have to repeal these black laws. The entire country knows these laws favour 2-3 big businessmen.”
