Convene special Parliament session on farmers' issues: Congress

The Congress intensified its criticism of the BJP-led Centre regarding the ongoing farmers' protest, urging for a special session of Parliament to address farmers' concerns. Additionally, they called for a similar session in the Punjab state assembly. The demand came following clashes at Khanauri on the Punjab-Haryana border, resulting in the death of a farmer and injuries to several police personnel.

Jairam Ramesh, Congress general secretary, expressed solidarity with farmers, emphasizing their crucial role in India's agricultural progress. He criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi's response, alleging that instead of addressing farmers' demands for Minimum Support Price (MSP), the government resorted to force, which he deemed unjust. Ramesh also condemned alleged mistreatment of youth protesting for employment opportunities.

Sukhpal Singh Khaira, Chairman of the All India Kisan Congress, condemned what he described as the "brutal" actions of the Haryana government against farmers. He questioned why the Punjab government had not filed an FIR regarding the farmer's death within its territory. Khaira accused Haryana Police of encroaching into Punjab and using force against protesters.

Khaira suggested a collaboration between Haryana and Punjab's chief ministers against the farmers, alleging a joint operation. He also raised concerns about missing or detained farmers and urged the restoration of internet services in Punjab to curb misinformation. Additionally, he called for the suspension of social media accounts inciting hatred against farmers.

In conclusion, the Congress strongly criticized the government's handling of the farmers' protest, demanding parliamentary and state assembly sessions to address the issues. They condemned the use of force against protesters and called for justice for the deceased farmer. Khaira highlighted concerns about missing farmers and urged measures to prevent the spread of misinformation and hate speech.
