Congress observes ‘Kisan Vijay Diwas’ in UP

LUCKNOW: The Congress on Saturday observed “Kisan Vijay Diwas” in Uttar Pradesh, terming the repeal of Centre’s three farm laws as the victory of farmers’ struggle and paid homage to those who lost their lives during the agitation. The party observed ‘Kisan Vijay Diwas’ all over the state to mark the victory of the farmers’ struggle against the three laws, a party spokesman said. On this occasion a programme was held at the state Congress headquarters where earthen lamps were lit and floral tributes were paid to the farmers who lost their lives during the agitation.

A two-minute silence was also observed as a mark of respect to the departed souls, the spokesman said.

Later, UPCC president Ajay Kumar Lallu said despite more than 700 farmers losing their lives during the year-long agitation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not paid tributes to them. In fact, the central government and the prime minister himself have made every attempt to defame the farmers’ agitation, Lallu alleged.
