NEW DELHI — Ahead of its protest on January 15 against the farm laws, the Congress has reached out to opposition parties to devise a joint strategy to press the demand for the withdrawal of the legislations.

Interim President Sonia Gandhi has sought support from like-minded parties on the ongoing agitation by the farmers, sources said. According to the sources, she spoke to NCP supremo Sharad Pawar, and CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury, and they, in turn, are likely to speak other opposition party leaders to mobilise support.

The Congress on Saturday announced that it has decided to organise ‘Kisan Adhikar Divas’ across the country on January 15 and will hold sit-ins outside the Raj Bhavans in all states.

The party is also preparing a booklet to tell the people why it is opposing the farm laws.

Congress General Secretary, Organisation, K.C. Venugopal said: “Now, the Supreme Court has said that the Central government failed to protect the interests of the farmers, lets hope good sense prevails with the government. The Central government should repeal the farm laws and the PM should speak to farmers and offer his apologies.”

After the apex court’s observations, Congress General Secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala said that “now the government should withdraw these laws”.

On Monday, the Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice S. A. Bobde toughened its stand, saying that the court has made up its mind to stay the implementation of the three farm laws, which have led to the protest by thousands of farmers at various Delhi borders. — IANS

  1. SONIA GANDHI: A God-gifted, cool minded and brilliant politician of India, every minute India is losing its creditability as a law-abiding Nation, terroristic attacks, religious attacks,bhumafia attacks and terrorizing Kissan is a poor image of India, a genuine largest democratic Nation of the world has become the largest Phoney democracy of the world, phoney politicians, subordinate court justices, police officers are not serving the public they are looting India respected Sonia Gandhi after the mindless murder of her husband has sacrificed her life to make India a law-abiding, civilized and prosperous Nation of the world, her opponent the political critics have targetted respected Sonia Gandhi, her son and daughter in an attempt to destroy their unquestionable integrity which the family has enjoyed around the world. The opposition leaders and the leaders of each political party must respect Sonia Gandhi and respect her opinion to resolve the present Kissan conflict. I am a UP NRI residing in Canada since 1975, I frequently visit India and have visited each corner of the earth, on the basis of my worldly experience, I am witnessing that India has become the most dangerous country of the world, most of the politicians are looters but certainly respected Sonia Gandhi is a true person respecting each Indian equally, she is a rarity of the world.
