New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday asked the Centre to shun arrogance and give the rights to the protesting farmers.
"Farmers are protesting on the streets and a 'lie' giving speeches on television. We all are indebted to the farmers for their hard work. And we can repay their debt by giving them justice and their rights, not by disrespecting them or by hitting them with lathis or tear-gas shells. Wake up, get down from a position of arrogance and think, and give the farmers their rights," the Wayanad MP tweeted.
Thousands of farmers from several states have been protesting on Delhi borders since last week, demanding repeal of three central farm laws.
The government has called the farmers for a meeting later in the day.
