Rahul Gandhi Farmers

The rice, the wheat you buy comes to you at the rate it comes because of the APMC, so this is not an assault on the farmers, this is an assault on the middle class: Rahul Gandhi

Rahul Gandhi, Former Congress President via INC India:

There is a tragedy unfolding in our country today, the Govt wants to ignore this tragedy, it wants to misinform people but the truth is that a huge tragedy is unfolding

What we are seeing, in industry after industry be it airports, infrastructure, telecom, retail, across the board, what we are watching is the development of massive monopolies in this country. 3-4-5 people are now owning this country

This country is now owned by a limited small group of people who I term as crony capitalists who have a close relationship with the PM and who provide the PM with media support

Biggest business in India is agriculture, 60% of our people are in agriculture & in terms of value, agriculture is by far the biggest hit.

Agriculture is not just what the farm grows, it’s the machinery that moves that produce, the structure of how it is sold

The last bastion that was protected from monopoly is being overrun. 3 new laws have been passed, they are designed to destroy Indian agriculture, by destroying mandis, by destroying essential commodities act & by making sure that no Indian farmer can go to court

The country itself is not able to understand what is happening. The result of this is going to be 3-4 people are going to own entire agriculture system. Farmers will not get the value they deserve, mandi system will be destroyed

3-4 businessmen will be able to store millions and millions of tons of wheat, rice, other essential commodities and my friends in the middle class, you will be paying prices you have never imagined

The rice, the wheat you buy comes to you at the rate it comes because of the APMC, so this is not an assault on the farmers, this is an assault on the middle class and every youngster that will not be able to find a job

This is what I want to tell youngsters, realise your independence is being taken away, realise this happened before and we fought this and everything that we have today is because of the fight that we fought and the exact same thing is happening to India, today
