Rahul Gandhi addresses ‘Kheti Bachao Yatra’ in Haryana against farm laws

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday addressed the ‘Kheti Bachao Yatra’ in Haryana’s Kurukshetra against the Centre’s farm laws.

Rahul was in Punjab from past three days and entered Haryana today amid high drama at state’s border with Punjab. The former Congress President along with few party leaders were allowed to enter the state.

After winding up his last rally at Sanaur in Patiala’s Punjab, Rahul drove a tractor to reach Haryana border on the concluding day of his “Kheti Bachao Yatra”.

Rahul’s tractor rally was stopped briefly outside Haryana by policemen.

“They have stopped us on a bridge on the Haryana border. I’m not moving and am happy to wait here. 1 hour, 5 hours, 24 hours, 100 hours, 1000 hours or 5000 hours,” Rahul said in a tweet.

The former Congress chief was accompanied on the tractor by Punjab Congress president Sunil Jakhar and senior party leader Harish Rawat.

Rahul Gandhi criticised the Modi Government for destroying the existing procurement system instead of strengthening it.
