One of the leader, Jairam Ramesh told the media, “(Our) fight will go on, both in the Parliament and outside against the amendments. We will keep fighting against it.”
Another party leader and actor Raj Babbar questioned the government and said, “We are completely against the amendments. In (proposed) law, farmers don’t have the right to take decision regarding their own land. Even if I take a mere pen from you, I will ask you. Then how come, a farmer, for whom land is his mother, is being asked to hand it over to someone else (without consent)?”.
