AICC Statement by Shri K.C. Venugopal, MP, General Secretary, Organization
At the forefront of the fight against the three draconian anti-farmers legislations inside Parliament as indeed outside, the Congress Party will support and actively participate in the “Bharat Bandh” called by different Kisan Unions/ Organizations on December 8, 2020.
The Party stands in solidarity with the Farmers- our Annadatas in their committed and uncompromising historic struggle against these anti-people legislations, despite brutal state atrocities and harsh weather conditions.
The struggle indeed is a fruition of the relentless campaign, action and commitment that the Congress Party has been incessantly undertaking through Kisan Sammelans, signature campaigns and Tractor rallies led by Shri Rahul Gandhi.
With regards to the Bharat Bandh on 8th December, all PCCs have been asked to extend their support to the Bandh, related activities and demonstrations in their respective states and UTs. The PCCs and DCCs will rally Congress workers, volunteers and leaders across the country and organise demonstrations in support of the Bandh call given by Farmer Unions in their respective State and District Headquarters.
