PM Modi Should Resign If He Can’t Repeal Farm Laws: Congress

New Delhi: The Congress on Saturday asked the Centre why it wants farmer groups opposed to the new agricultural reforms to move the Supreme Court and said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should quit if he is not competent enough to repeal them.
People have elected the government and not the Supreme Court, Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.
He also announced that the Congress will observe ‘Kisan Adhikar Diwas’ (Farmers’ Rights Day) on January 15, when the government and the farmer unions will meet for the next round of talks, and hold ‘Jan Andolans’ at all state headquarters. The party will hold protest marches and gherao the governor’s office in every state.
The decision was taken after a meeting of the party’s general secretaries and in-charges in various states.
“People have elected this government and not the Supreme Court. Then why does the government want people to go to elsewhere?” Surjewala asked.
“The Modi government is answerable to the people for taking decisions and not the Supreme Court. The responsibility of making and repealing the laws wrests with Parliament and not the court,” he said.
He added that if the Modi government is unable to discharge its responsibility, “the Congress wants that you should resign and sit at home as you have no moral authority to remain in power even for a minute”.
