Threatening, intimidating farmers grave sin: Priyanka Gandhi

Speaking on the police crackdown on farmers protesting at different borders of Delhi, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said that the threatening farmers is a great sin.

“The trust of the farmer is the capital of the country. Breaking their trust is a crime. It is a sin to not listen to their voice. Threatening them is a great sin. Attack on the farmer is an attack on the country. Prime Minister, do not weaken the country,” she tweeted.

Congress former chief Rahul Gandhi also Friday said the farmers’ protests will spread to big cities if the government acts rigid and does not repeal the three contentious farm laws.

“Most farmers, except the ones in Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan, haven’t understood the (farm) Bill completely. The government should know that these protests will not stop here. This agitation will spread from here to the big cities because it is not only the farmers who have been robbed of their livelihood. It is going to create instability which is not good for the country,” he said at a press conference.
