Neemuch (Madhya Pradesh): Congress President Sonia Gandhi, who was on a tour of Neemuch in Western Madhya Pradesh today to take stock of the ground situation and the plight of the hail-hit farmers said that she does not think it is necessary to offer any reaction to Union Minister Giriraj Singh’s remark targeting her (over her white skin) since it smacks of his low mindset.

Ms. Gandhi, who went on foot to inspect the agricultural piece of land belonging to a widow Geeta Bai, who is a marginal farmer and has lost her husband and a son, said that the Congress party is committed and will do everything to ensure the farmers get relief.

The Congress President also voiced opposition to the Narendra Modi ledĀ central Government’s proposed Land Acquisition Bill and said that the Congress party will not compromise the interests of the farmers.
