Following the approval of the Agriculture Bill by the Congress Parliament, on Sunday, it was declared as a ‘Death Decree’ against the farmers and claimed that these Bills were approved in compliance with the rules and parliamentary traditions. The party further said that the opposition parties would bring a no-confidence motion against Rajya Sabha vice-chairman Harivansh for “anti-democratic and undemocratic conduct”. Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “The farmer who grows gold from the world, the pride of Modi government makes him cry tears of blood.” Democracy is ashamed of the way the government has issued a decree against farmers in the Rajya Sabha today in the form of an agricultural bill against agriculture.
“Today is a dark day for Indian democracy,” party general secretary Casey Venugopal told reporters. The manner in which the government has passed the anti-farmer bill is contrary to the rules and tradition. The government has broken the established parliamentary system, rules and traditions.
“Opposition parties unanimously decided that a no-confidence motion would be brought against the Rajya Sabha vice-chairman for his anti-democratic and undemocratic conduct in passing these bills,” he said. Their behavior comes under violation of the rights of members.
