Priyanka Gandhi sends homemade food for protesting Cong MPs

New Delhi, Jan 16 Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra sent food cooked in her kitchen for Congress MPs protesting at Delhi's Jantar Mantar. Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi was accompanied by his sister Priyanka at the protest site.

Most of the MPs and MLAs protesting at Jantar Mantar are from the Punjab unit of the Congress. When spoke to Jasbir Singh Gill, Congress MP from Khadoor Sahib in Punjab, he said, "We met Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Friday and had a long chat. It seems that she wanted to appreciate the work we have done and for this reason she sent the food," he said.

Priyanka sent paneer, rajma, rice, roti and gajrela for the protesting lawmakers. Jasbir Singh Gill also told that most of the time they get food from local gurudwaras and sometimes from people's homes. Congress lawmakers have been protesting against the three contentious farm laws for the last 52 days. Gill also said they would continue with the sit-in protests till the farm laws are withdrawn.

The farmers' protest in Delhi has led to a standstill at the Singhu border where thousands of farmers continue to stay put. This is despite the Supreme Court announcing a four-member committee. This was the second public event attended by the Milan-returned Rahul Gandhi who first went to Tamil Nadu to attend the 'Jallikattu' event.
