In Lok Sabha, Rahul Gandhi gives ‘list of dead farmer protesters’, seeks aid.
SENIOR Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Tuesday presented in the Lok Sabha a list that he said contained names of farmers who had died during the year-long protest against the three agricultural laws, adding that the government has said it had no such details.
Speaking during Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha, Rahul demanded that the families of the farmers be provided compensation. “The country knows that during the farmers’ movement, 700 farmers were martyred. The PM apologised to the farmers and accepted his mistake. The Agriculture Minister (Narendra Tomar) was asked about the number of farmers who were martyred during the movement, and he had said he has no data,” Rahul said, presenting the list of names.
