New Delhi, February 2
The Congress is gearing up to launch a political offensive on the government in Lok Sabha today to question Delhi police’ barricading of all farmer protest sites.
The party already staged a walkout from Rajya Sabha together with joint opposition and forced adjournment of proceedings.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi led the charge tweeting “GOI build bridges not walls.”
His sister and Congress General Secretary followed with another tweet saying “GOI at war with its own farmers.”
The Congress is also planning to seek suspension of proceedings in LS to discuss farmer issues.
Other opposition parties have given similar suspension notices.
Ahead of the LS commencement at 4 pm today the Congress has called a meeting of party MPs at 3 pm.
Rahul Gandhi is likely to address the MPs.
