Later, Priyanka was taken to Mandir Marg police station.
“We are living in democracy and they are elected MPs. They have the right to meet the President and they should be allowed. What is the problem with that? This government is not ready to listen to voices of lakhs of farmers camping at borders,” she said after being stopped by police.
Saying that the Modi government cannot blame the Opposition for everything and always, Priyanka said, “Sometimes they say we are so weak that we don’t qualify as Opposition and sometimes, they say that we are so powerful that we have made lakhs of farmers camp at the border (of Delhi) for a month.”
It is a sin to use the kind of names they (BJP leaders & supporters) used for farmers. If Govt is calling them anti-nationals, then the govt is a sinner, said Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi
“Any dissent against this govt is classified as having elements of terror. We are undertaking this march to voice our support for the farmers,” she said.
Farmers have been protesting at the Delhi borders against the contentious farm laws for almost a month now. The government has held many round of talks with the farmer unions but to no avail.
