Youth Congress protests against BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi's remark on farmers
Lekhi on Thursday had denounced farmers protesting here against the three contentious farm laws as ''mawali'' (ruffian) after she was asked about incidents of alleged violence during their protests.
As her comments created a furore, the BJP leader later tweeted that her comments were ''twisted'' and that she withdraws her words if they have hurt anyone.
''This shows their poor thinking and mentality towards farmers of our country. For the last eight months, the country's food producers have been fighting day and night on the border of Delhi against the three black agricultural laws, leaving everything behind,'' the Congress leader said in a statement.
''...otherwise she should resign from her post, because the country will not tolerate the insult of its food producers,'' he added.
