'Some farmers misguided by their political masters': Javadekar attacks oppn

Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said that 'some' agitating farmers were misguided by their 'political masters'.

He added that they were showing as if it was the stand of all farmers of the country.

The union environment minister also hit out at Congress' Rahul Gandhi for his criticism over farm laws.

Javadekar challenged the Congress leader for an open debate on the farmers' issue.

Javadekar was addressing farmers at a meet organised by Tamil Nadu BJP in Maraimalai Nagar.

Earlier on Thursday, Rahul Gandhi had called the farmer protests a 'Satyagraha'.

The Gandhi scion had also urged people to support the farmers agitating against the Centre's newly enacted farm laws.
