AAP MPs raised slogans in front of Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding immediate rollback of these anti-farmer laws, during the ceremony to launch a book on former Prime Minister AB Vajpayee.
Senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Lok Sabha MP Bhagwant Mann and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh carried placards while trying to seek attention of the Prime Minister on Friday.
The AAP leader said "Today after the celebration of former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee's birth anniversary we raised slogans reiterating the demands of the farmers."
Mann said that PM Modi goes to Gujarat to meet the farmers of his choice but he does not go to meet thousands of farmers sitting 20 km away from his house.
The AAP leader said that at one side the BJP government is saying that they are ready to amend these bills and talk to the farmers on the other hand, they are praising these bills. "There is a nexus between Congress and BJP, Congress is protesting only to show off, that is why Congress leaders present in the Central Hall did not raise their voice for farmers today," he said.
Mann further said, "We wanted to apprise the BJP led central government about the demands of the farmers. We wanted to tell the BJP ruled central government that they must listen to the demands of these farmers who are sitting at the borders of Delhi for the past several days demanding immediate rollback of these antifarmer laws."
"I was trying to tell the Prime Minister that this is the same BJP government who held a joint session at the midnight to pass the GST Bill and celebrated the event. I wanted to tell the Prime Minister that today it is high time and the BJP government must immediately call a special session of the Parliament and rollback these antifarmer laws," he said.
At one side the BJP government is not ready to call a special session of the Parliament citing the reason of COVID-19 pandemic and on the other side, the same party is doing rallies with thousands and thousands of people in West Bengal before the election, he added.
