''But farmers have understood everything that's whythey are agitating for more than a month now. The SupremeCourt has also taken note of the agitation.
''Therefore, the government should withdraw the laws toend the agitation,'' Baghel said.
Talking to the media, he said the purpose of the campwas to create new energy among Congress office-bearers bypropagating Mahatma Gandhi's ideas on non-violence, peace,equality and eradication of untouchability.
