“The peaceful satyagraha of annadatas is in national interest — these three laws are not just harmful for farmers-labourers, but also for the people and the country. Full support!” Gandhi said in a tweet.
अन्नदाता का शांतिपूर्ण सत्याग्रह देशहित में है- ये तीन क़ानून सिर्फ़ किसान-मज़दूर के लिए ही नहीं, जनता व देश के लिए भी घातक हैं।

“In Modi’s ‘friend’ focused budget- The farmer will have to pay more for petrol and diesel and will not get any financial help. After being crushed by three anti-agrarian laws, another attack on the donor of the country!,” he said on Friday.
Farmer unions had on Monday announced a countrywide ‘chakka jam’ on February 6 during which they would block national and state highways between 12 noon and 3 pm to protest the internet ban in areas near their agitation sites, harassment allegedly meted out to them by authorities, and other issues.
