Rahul Gandhi on July 26 rode a new set of wheels to Parliament carrying a warning, farmers' message and registering his protest against the three agricultural laws. Seated at the wheel on a blazing red tractor, Rahul Gandhi, sporting a half-sleeved shirt, trousers and sandals, rode along confidently with a face mask on in the heart of Delhi, marking his protest against the controversial farm laws. Congress leader Randeep Surjewala and others were detained by the police for riding a tractor to the Parliament. Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi said, “As per the government, farmers are very happy and those (protesting farmers) sitting outside are terrorists. But in reality, farmers' rights are being snatched away.” Gandhi also tweeted that "tractors will run in Parliament" if farmers are forced to sell their land. BJP claimed that farmers are being used as a political tool by the opposition. Thousands of farmers have been protesting since November at the three Delhi border points seeking repeal of the farm laws and a new law to guarantee minimum support price, or MSP, for crops. On July 25, while calling the farmers of Jind (Haryana) revolutionaries, Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait had hailed the decision of carrying out a tractor parade in protest against the centre's farm laws on Independence Day.
