The Congress in Madhya Pradesh on Monday staged a silent protest in front of the Gandhi Statue on the premises of the Vidhan Sabha to show support to the agitating farmers.


As a face-saving measure, Congress MLAs in Madhya Pradesh on Monday sat on a symbolic silent protest near Mahatma Gandhi's statue in the Vidhan Sabha premises after the three-day session that was to start on December 28 was called off after an all-party meeting on December 27.

The all-party meeting on Sunday, in which the decision to call off the session was taken, was attended by former Chief Minister and state Congress President Kamal Nath among others.

After the all-party meeting, state Home minister Narottam Mishra claimed before the media that the decision to call off the Vidhan Sabha was unanimous as Kamal Nath stood next to him.

The Congress party had earlier announced that all its MLAs would reach the state Vidhan Sabha on tractors to show solidarity with the protesting farmers in and around Delhi and to register its opposition against the three farm laws.

Congressmen preparing for the protest were taken aback when the party leadership agreed on calling off the three-day session at the all-party meeting that was convened by the Protem Speaker to discuss the issue after several MLAs and staff members of the Vidhan Sabha tested coronavirus positive.

The Government had imposed section 144 and banned tractors and trolleys within a 5-KM radius of the Vidhan Sabha as a precautionary measure.

Congress leaders who were tasked with bringing tractors and farmers for the protest had claimed on Sunday evening that they would go ahead with the protest even if the Vidhan session had been called off.

These leaders were in for another surprise when they were informed by the state party leadership that even the tractor protest had been called off.
