Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on February 03 said central government needs to resolve the farmers' matter as soon as possible, warning that the protestors are not going away. He said, "Delhi is surrounded by farmers. They're the people who give us sustenance. Why is Delhi being converted into a fortress? Why are we threatening, beating and killing them? Why is Govt not talking to them and not resolving this problem? This problem isn't good for country." "PM saying that offer is still on table to postpone laws for 2 yrs. What does it mean? Either you believe that you need to get rid of the laws or you don't. I feel this issue needs to be resolved as soon as possible and Govt needs to listen as farmers aren't going away," he added.
