PM doesn’t respect farmers, wants to tire out protesters: Rahul Gandhi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi does not respect farmers and wants to tire out those protesting against the Centre’s new agri laws, Congress former chief Rahul Gandhi alleged on Friday.

Congress leader also claimed that the talks that are being held with the protesting farmer leaders are part of the government’s delaying tactics.

Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra met party MPs who are protesting against the new farm laws at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar.

“The talks are being held only to delay. PM Modi thinks he has the power and will tire the farmers out, but he is mistaken,” Gandhi said.

“Narendra Modi does not have basic respect for farmers. He does not even care if over 100 farmers die. He thinks he has the power and the protesting farmers will tire out after some days, but they will not relent,” he added.
