Vijayawada (Andhra Pradesh) [India], January 29 (ANI): As Gram Panchayat polls are around the corner, Andhra Pradesh Congress president Sake Sailajanath on Friday urged people not to vote for those parties which supported the three farm laws in the Parliament.
Addressing the media here, he termed the Agri laws as "detrimental" to farmers and lashed out at YSRCP and Telugu Desam Party stating that they supported these acts in the Parliament.
"The three farm laws are detrimental to farmers and beneficial to corporates. YS Jagan Mohan Reddy's party has supported the farm laws and put the lives of farmers in the hands of Adanis and Ambanis," he said.
"YSRCP and TDP supported farm laws in Parliament. Don't vote for their candidates. Vote for our candidates. Congress is the party for Gram Swaraj, as it worked for farmers' welfare and will always do," he added.
The Congress leader also accused the YSRCP government of making the panchayat polls "unanimous".
"The state government is trying to make elections unanimous by intimidation and giving threats. Congress will not accept such unanimous elections," he said.
The Gram Panchayat elections will be held in four phases across the state beginning February 9. The polling for the final phase of elections will be held on February 21. (ANI)
