Aam Aadmi Party MPs Bhagwant Mann and Sanjay Singh today (25 December) began chanting slogans against the new farm laws in the Parliament's Central Hall while Prime Minister Narendra Modi was paying a tribute to former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on his 96th birth anniversary.
A video of this act was shared by journalist Brajesh Pandey.
It can be seen in the video that the AAP MPs have been chanting slogans like Kisaan virodhi kaala kanoon wapas lo (take back the anti-farmer black laws) and MSP Ki Gurantee Do (give a MSP guarantee).
As pointed out by twitter users, while the AAP MPs desperately tried to get the attention of Prime Minister Modi by yelling Pradhanmantri Ji suniye (Please listen Prime Minister), they were completely ignored by the Prime Minister who after greeting other dignitaries in the hall, proceeded to the exit.
It should be noted that the social media users had recently dug up an old tweet and manifesto of the AAP wherein the party ccould be seen promising sweeping farm reforms in the state of Punjab.
The party has now become a vocal critic of these reforms after they were ushered in by the Narendra Modi led central government.
