Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, in beginning his address in the Lower House of Parliament, on Thursday said that he would speak on the content and intent of the farm laws.

Describing the content of the Centre's first new farm laws, Congress leader said on Thursday that the first farm law was aimed towards finishing the Mandis. "The content of the first law is that one can have unlimited purchase of foodgrains, fruits & vegetables anywhere in the country. If the purchase is unlimited anywhere in the country, then who would go to Mandis?" he added.

Gandhi said that the content of the second farm laws was to end the Essential Commodities Act and to further start unlimited hoarding in the country.
