'Hum do, humare do': Rahul Gandhi targets government over farm laws
Rahul Gandhi‘s address came after Primi Minister Narendra Modi addressed the Lok Sabha on Wednesday.
Rahul Gandhi on Thursday slammed the government over the three farm laws, alleging that new farm laws brought by the government will lead to "collapse of mandi system, allow unlimited hoarding and prevent aggrieved farmers from moving courts"
Targetting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gandhi said he was speaking on the "content and intent" of three farm laws to which Prime Minister Narendra Modi had referred in his speech on Wednesday.
"Yesterday while addressing the House, PM said that the Opposition is talking about the agitation but not about the content and intent of Farm Laws. I thought I should make him happy today and speak on the content and intent of the laws," he said
Hitting out at the central government, Gandhi said, “The nation is run by four people – 'Hum do humare do'. Everyone knows their names. Whose government is it, of 'hum do, humare do',”
Amid disruption, Gandhi alleged that the first law "was aimed at finishing the mandis"
"The content of the second law is that big businessmen can store as much food grains, fruits, and vegetables as they want. They can hoard as much as they want. The content of the second law is to end the Essential Commodities Act. It is, to start unlimited hoarding in India," he said.
He alleged that the new farm laws will lead to "bhookh, berozgaari and aatma hatya."
