Rahul Gandhi joins farmers protest outside Parliament

Rahul Gandhi joined Congress MPs outside the Parliament on Thursday during their protest over the newly implemented farm laws. Chanting slogans like “Modi is anti-farmers”, the Congress leaders asked the Centre to repeal the laws.

With the Monsoon Session of the Parliament entering its third day today, the Opposition parties are expected to corner the government over its statement that no deaths were reported due to lack of oxygen during the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Today’s session comes amid the farmers holding protests at New Delhi’s Jantar Mantar against the newly implemented farm laws as part of their decision to hold ‘Kisan Sansads’ on each working day of the Parliament until the Monsoon Session ends.

No session had taken place in the Parliament on Wednesday owing to Eid.
