Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday strongly pulled the government over the farmer’s movement. Rahul Gandhi compared the agitating farmers to the ‘Satyagrahis’ and said that the farmers will continue to take their rights from the government. He tweeted in Hindi, the country is facing a tragedy like Champaran, then the British were Company Bahadur and now PM’s friend is Company Bahadur.
He said, but agitating farmers are ‘satyagrahis’; They will take their right.
Satyagraha is a method of political protest against government policies. Mahatma Gandhi adopted the method of Satyagraha against British rule.
During the independence movement, Mahatma Gandhi held a Satyagraha in Champaran, Bihar in 1917, when he agitated against the forced farmers to cultivate indigo.
