Rahul Gandhi in Moga for tractor rally against farm laws

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is set to take out tractor rallies in Punjab on Sunday to protest the three farm laws recently cleared by Parliament after his visit to the state to extend support to agitating farmers was postponed by a day as he visited the family of Hathras gang-rape victim on Saturday.

The rallies are scheduled to begin at 11am on each of the three days, and will adhere to Covid-19 guidelines. According to a Punjab Congress spokesperson, the former party president’s rallies will cover more than 50km, starting from Moga to Patiala, over three days till October 6.

The Congress party is protesting against three farm laws – The Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Service Act, 2020 and The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020 – passed by the Parliament during the monsoon session.
