Farmer's Rally at Patti, Amritsar, Punjab
As per the call given by Hon'ble Congress President, Smt. Sonia Gandhi in Parliament and party forum to wage a war against the anti-farmer policies of NDA government, Indian youth Congress held a massive farmer's rally at Patti in Amritsar, Punjab on 17th Jan 2001. Patti Assembly constituency is represented by Sardar Prakash Singh Badal, Chief Minister's Son - in - Law Adesh Pratap Kairon and Congress Party lost this constituency by highest margin during last assembly election.
Despite biting cold and sub-zero temperature, youth congress moblised thousands of farmers, who intently participated and vowed to stand behind Congress Party for amelioration of their conditions. We particularly highlighted the 'adjournment motion' moved in Parliament on 22 Nov 2000 and the aggressive stance taken by Congress Party for finding a lasting solution to farmer's problems.
