Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday had attended Kisan Mahapanchayat in Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur district amidst the ongoing farmers' protest in the country. In her speech, she attacked the BJP government fiercely, claiming 'the 56-inch chest has a small heart, but it beats for industrialists'. 'The government wants to kill farmers through this law. The farmers are fighting for their rights,' she said. The Congress leader ventured, "Prime Minister insulted the farmers in Parliament, also called them agitators. What does this mean? The farmers are agitating for the soil of their country, for their son who is standing on the border. To call them a traitor, to make fun of them, to call them a terrorist can never be nationalism."

Priyanka had also opined that the Prime Minister went to America, China, Pakistan, but could not reach the border of the city in which he lives. In her address, she explained, "this is a movement of your land, 'do not back down'.
