Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, on October 20, in a tweet said, “INC under the leadership of Smt #SoniaGandhi ji & #RahulGandhi ji stands resolutely with our ‘annadatas’ and will continue to oppose the anti-farmer laws passed by the NDA Govt. Today Congress Govt in #Punjab has passed Bills against these laws & #Rajasthan will follow soon.”

Earlier, the Punjab Assembly has taken a decision to null and void three farm laws passed by the Centre. The State Assembly passed four bills and adopted a resolution against the farm laws. Following the move, the Government of Rajasthan is all set to walk the footsteps of Punjab by taking decisions on the farm laws which were named ‘anti-farmer’ by CM Gehlot.
