Describing the farm Bills passed in Rajya Sabha as “anti-farmer”, Congress said Sunday would be remembered as a black day for democracy. The party is now planning to launch protests across the country.
A high-level committee will meet all AICC general secretaries and state in-charges on Monday to finalize the plan for a nationwide agitation. Party chief Sonia Gandhi is now abroad for a medical check-up.
The Congress hit out at the government for pushing through the Bills amid stormy scenes. “Today’s entire episode was a conspiracy built by the BJP leadership. They wanted to bulldoze these anti-farmer laws without any delay. The Congress and the other opposition parties are not going to leave this issue,” said AICC general secretary in charge of organization K C Venugopal.
