Congress supporting Bharatiya Kisan Union leaders and members have now joined the ‘organic and apolitical’ anti-CAA protests at Shaheen Bagh in national capital.

These farmers were under the banner of Bharatiya Kisan Union (Ekta Ugrahan), and it is affiliated to All India Kisan Coordination Committee (KCC).

Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in 2019, Bharatiya Kisan Union had announced support for Congress party. BKU national president S. Bhupinder Singh Mann had said that they had decided to support Congress after evaluating the manifestos of both BJP and Congress. KCC had also supported Congress ahead of 2019 elections.

Speaking at a session on “Is Liberal Democracy Dead?”, which is itself ironic given the fact that it was organized in an Islamic State that uses terrorism as state policy, Aiyar again insulted India. Shaheen Bagh is the same place where ‘Jinnah wali Azadi‘ slogans were raised by the protesters against the Citizenship Amendment Act, hinting at the Radical Islamic inclinations of the protesters.
