Youth Cong to collect soil as part of anti-farm laws protest

·1-min read

Indore, Jan 11 (PTI) The Youth Congress on Monday started a campaign here against the Centre's new farm laws as part of which soil from different places will be used to make a map of India in Delhi, the outfit's president Srinivas BV said.

He said the Centre was on the backfoot due to the relentless attack on the farm laws by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.

He said Gandhi had gone abroad to meet his ailing grandmother but a rattled BJP was unnecessarily making his absence an issue.

'We have launched a campaign called 'Ek mutthi mitti shaheedon ke naam' against the new agriculture laws. We will collect soil from across the country and make a map of India with it in Delhi to awaken the Centre on farmers' issues,' he said. PTI HWP MAS BNM BNM
