'You Never Listened...': Congress's Kapil Sibal To PM On Farmers' Protest

Kapil Sabil criticised the government today over farmers' protest.

New Delhi:

As the protest by the farmers, camping at the Delhi borders against the Centre's agricultural reforms enters 17th day today, Congress leader Kapil Sibal took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he never listens to the grievances of the farmers.

"Agitating Farmers; Prime Minister says: ''Say something and listen to something (kuchh kahiye kuchh suniye); Since 2014 Modi ji:''You said everything and never listened (aap ne sab kuchh kaha aur kabhi bhi na sunna)" Kapil Sibal tweeted.

Earlier, the Congress leader had accused the government of not considering to the suggestions put forward by the Opposition parties on farm laws and alleged that it does not hold comprehensive dialogue on legislations.

He said most legislations are not referred to parliamentary committees for scrutiny and because the government has a majority in Lok Sabha, "they really don't care".

Thousands of farmers are protesting near Delhi's borders against recently enacted farm laws - Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
