Joined by Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will lead tractor rallies across Punjab from October 3 to 5, in protest against the Centre’s brutal, unconstitutional, and anti-farmer Agriculture laws.

All Punjab ministers and Congress MLAs will participate in the protest rallies, along with AICC General Secretary in-charge of Punjab affairs, Harish Rawat, and PPCC president Sunil Jakhar, to give voice to the angst and pain of the farmers, whose livelihood and future has been put at stake by the central legislations.

The tractor rallies are scheduled at around 11 a.m. on each of the three days and will be conducted amid strict COVID protocols.
