Agrarian crisis – Trinamool protests in Parliament

Trinamool Congress MPs from Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha today gathered in front of the statue of Mahatma Gandhi inside Parliament premises to protest against the current government at the Centre on the issue of agrarian crisis.

Slogans were raised against the government. The MPs said, to save the farmers of the country, BJP must be thrown out of power in 2019.

Some of the slogans raised at the dharna were: “Kisan Bhachao, Modi Bhagao”; “Kisan Bachao Desh Bachao”; “Modi Hatao, Desh Bachao” among others.

A notice under Rule 267 was also submitted by the party in Rajya Sabha. While the Chairman said that the notice has been allowed, it could not be taken up for discussion due to disruptions.
