Congress leader Rahul Gandhi flagged off a tractor rally in Punjab on Sunday to protest against the Centre's recently enacted agriculture laws.

Gandhi arrived in Moga for holding tractor rallies across Punjab from October 4 till 6.

The rallies, which have been named 'Kheti Bachao Yatra', would cover more than 50 km, spread over three days in various districts and constituencies.

As the rally saw support from ministers and farmers, Gandhi scion was photographed on a customised tractor with a make-shift sofa seat to give him a ride during his rally.

In no time, trolls took notice of the pic and compared Gandhi's "unusual" seating arrangement on the tractor to the scene from popular British sitcom Mr Bean wherein Rowan Atkinson, who portrayed Mr Bean character, comically drives his car through the town while sitting atop of it on a sofa.

Calling Mr Bean a "better actor", Gandhi's photo soon went viral on microblogging site Twitter.

Meanwhile, Gandhi is said to visit Haryana on October 6 and 7 to continue the tractor rallies. On the first day, his rally will enter Pehowa in Haryana from Punjab border. In Pehowa, he will address the people, state Congress president Kumari Selja said.

After this, Rahul Gandhi will go to Kurukshetra and halt there for the night. His journey will start from Pipli Mandi next morning from where he will proceed to Nilokheri and after that he will go to Karnal, where the tractor rally will culminate, she said. Selja said Rahul Gandhi and other Congress leaders have been raising the issues of farmers, workers and common people.
