    NEW DELHI: Asking people to join the farmers' "satyagraha" against the Modi govt, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday spoke out in support of the ongoing protests and against rising fuel prices in the country.

    The Congress is observing the day as Kisan Adhikar Divas and will take out protest marches in all state capitals.

    If this idiot had public support he would not have run to Vaynad and his party would have been elected with better numbers instead of being what it is.

    Rise in price of fuel price is surely to be deplored. Government being in a monopolystic position is exploiting public . Not fare , not good in public interest . Should desist from such act.
