During the debate on Budget 2021, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi raked up the issue of farm laws in Lok Sabha and fired ‘hum do, humare do ki sarkar’ jibe.
He said that “Yesterday while addressing the House, PM Modi said that the Opposition was talking about the agitation but not about the content and intent of Farm Laws.”
“I thought I should make him happy today and speak on the content and intent of the laws,” said Rahul Gandhi in Lok Sabha.
He said, “The content of the first law is that one can have unlimited purchase of foodgrains, fruits and vegetables anywhere in the country. If the purchase is unlimited anywhere in the country, then who would go to Mandis? The content of the first law is to finish the mandis.”
“The content of the second law is that big businessmen can store as much food grains, fruits and vegetables as they want. They can hoard as much as they want. Content of the second law is to end the Essential Commodities Act. It is, to start unlimited hoarding in India,” Rahul Gandhi said.
During the debate on Budget 2021, he said that “The content of the third law is that when a farmer goes before the biggest businessman of India to demand the right price for his crops, he will not be allowed to go to the Court.”
“There was a slogan for family planning ‘Hum do humare do’. Like Corona comes back in a different form, this slogan has come back in a different form. The nation is run by 4 people – ‘Hum do humare do’. Everyone knows their names. Whose govt is it, of ‘hum do, hamare do’,” Gandhi said.
He further said that the “intent of the first law was to give one friend, the right to have all crops of India. Who’ll be at a loss? small businessmen and those working in the mandis. The intent of the second law is to help the 2nd friend. He keeps 40 percent of India’s crops in his storage.”
Furthermore, he said that “PM says he has given options. Yes, you gave 3 options – hunger, unemployment and suicide.”
