'Farm laws are like dagger through farmers' heart': Rahul Gandhi attacks Centre

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday interacted with farmers from several states virtually.

The interaction comes amid nationwide protests over the three farm laws.

Gandhi accused Centre of 'breaking the back' of informal sector through its policies.

He said that the farm laws are like a dagger through the heart of the farmers.

Farmers from Punjab, Bihar, Haryana and Maharashtra took part in the interaction.

They shared their views on farm laws and raised concerns over minimum support price.

The 10-minute-long interaction was telecast on Gandhi's social media handles.

"The three farm laws are like a dagger through your hearts.

We need to oppose this not just for farmers but also for the country," the Congress leader said.

President Kovind gave his assent to the controversial farm bills on Sunday.

The three bills were passed during the monsoon session of Parliament.

BJP hits back at Rahul Gandhi’s ‘PR driven media strategy’ jibe over China

BJP has lashed out at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over his tweet slamming the Modi government over its handling of the China issue. Rahul had cited a news report which hinted at renewed Chinese activity in Doklam. ‘China's geopolitical strategy cannot be countered by a PR driven media strategy. This simple fact seems to elude the minds of those running GOI,’ Rahul had tweeted. Hitting back, Union Minister Pralhad Joshi said that Congress and Rahul Gandhi have no right to speak on the issue and alleged that IF India lost land to China before, it was because of the Congress party. Joshi further said that Rahul Gandhi does not believe in reading and understanding and urged him to concentrate on the internal issues of the party. India and China have also been locked in a standoff in Ladakh since May. The Congress leader has attacked the BJP on several occasions over the issue and accused the Prime Minister of lying to the country over the status of the ground situation in the region. Watch the full video for all the details.
