Congress president Mallikarjuna Kharge and party leader Rahul Gandhi have condoled the death of a farmer in the firing on the Khanauri border. He said that history will surely demand an answer from the BJP for the killing of farmers.

Posted on ‘X’, Kharge said, “How can India remain silent when farmers’ lives are not saved? It is painful that a young farmer of Bathinda, Shubhakaran Singh, died in the firing on the Khanauri border,” he said.

“The Modi government – ​​first claimed the lives of 750 farmers. Modi cabinet minister’s son ran over farmers in Lakhimpur. It needs to be reminded that even in Mandsaur, Madhya Pradesh, farmers lost their lives to firing during the BJP government,” he expressed outrage.

In Parliament, Modiji himself called the farmers Andolanjeevi and Parjeevi (parasites). 10 years of BJP rule is hitting the farmers with a stick. Like a kick in the stomach. “Modi should be ashamed,” he said.

Rahul Gandhi also posted, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s arrogance took the lives of 700 farmers last time. The government is now again the enemy of the farmers.

Haryana police fired teargas shells and rubber bullets to stop the farmers from breaking through the barricades in Shambhu and Khanauri and trying to march towards Delhi. In this case, one farmer was killed and some were injured.
