Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday urged people to support the Bharat Bandh call given by farmer leaders and asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to stop "stealing" from farmers.
The Congress is supporting the Bharat Bandh and has joined the protests by holding dharnas and demonstrations across the country.
"Modi ji, stop stealing from farmers.
All fellow citizens know that today is Bharat Bandh.
Make our food growers' struggle successful by fully supporting it," he said in a tweet in Hindi.
