Gandhi is set to lead a march to the Governor's House in the national capital today, as part of the party's nationwide agitation to express solidarity with the ongoing farmers' protest against the three new farm laws.
Rajya Sabha MP and Congress leader KC Venugopal also urged people to join the campaign and said today will be marked in history as the day India stood up against a tyrannical force to protect the rights of our 'annadata'.
