New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi drove a tractor to Parliament on Monday to register his protest against the Union government's inaction over the demands put forth by farmers, who have been protesting against the three controversial farm laws.

Addressing the media after his stunt, Rahul took a jibe at the Union government saying "As per the government, farmers are very happy, and those (protesting farmers) sitting outside are terrorists. But in reality, farmers' rights are being snatched away."

"I've brought farmers' message to Parliament. They (Govt) are suppressing voices of farmers and not letting a discussion take place in Parliament", Gandhi added.

They'll have to repeal these black laws. The entire country knows these laws favour 2-3 big businessmen" he further added.

Meanwhile, reports say that AICC General Secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala was arrested by Delhi Police.

Thousands of farmers have been protesting since November at the three Delhi border points seeking repeal of the farm laws and a new law to guarantee minimum support price, or MSP, for crops.

Since the beginning of the monsoon session last week, Parliament has been adjourned several times over, among other things, the farm laws. Some Congress MPs said refused to let the House function until the matter was solved. They protested outside Parliament. The Shiromani Akali Dal also sought a debate.

Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar maintains the farm laws are beneficial, adding they can be discussed "point-wise" if farmers express the issues.

Several rounds of talks between farmers and the government have failed to break the deadlock over the contentious laws.
