Congress lawmakers, including Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, staged a protest against the farm laws on the first day of the Parliament’s Winter Session outside the House. They held a banner, saying: “We Demand Repeal of Black Farm Laws.”

Ruling Bhartiya Janata Party spokesman Tom Vaddakan wondered why Congress was protesting as the government has announced the repeal of the laws and Lok Sabha has passed a bill in this regard. “What is left now to withdraw it in the House. They are doing no justice to the Parliament and farmers by delaying proceedings. Congress is just trying to impress the gallery.”
