Later, former UP Congress chief and MP Raj Babbar joined the chorus and also sat on strike for their cause. Meanwhile, farmers and MP Rajesh Mishra wrote letters with blood to PM Modi to address their demands.
“As soon as we know that representative of our constituency, PM Modi returned to India, we came here to register their disappointment,” said a nonagenarian farmer to the Ten News.
Speaking to the Ten News, former UP Congress chief and MP, Raj Babbar said, “How a Prime Minister can sleep, when farmers of his constituency is crying and demanding to return their lands.”
