The president of the Congress party Sonia Gandhi has urged India’s Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi to repeal farm laws which are being imposed by his government on farmers.

Although the Congress party is facing extinction, Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul Gandhi keep issuing random statements through Twitter.

The Congress chief tweeted Sunday (January 3) that the Modi government should remember democracy means protecting the interests of people, the labourers, and the farmers. “The government should immediately withdraw all 3 black laws to end the agitation. This is true Rajdharma and a fitting tribute to the late farmers,” she said in her tweet.

It is said that more than 50 farmers have lost their lives during the ongoing agitation that the farmers are holding in Delhi’s chilling winter and rains. Farmers blame Modi for the deaths of protesters.

“Due to the government’s arrogance towards the agitation, 50 farmers have lost their lives. Some even resorted to suicide. However, neither the heartless Modi government, nor the PM (Modi) himself nor any minister has uttered a word of consolation,” Congress President said.
