Trump reacts to Sondland testifying that there was a "quid pro quo"

CBS News Wednesday, 20 November 2019
As U.S. Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland publicly testified in the impeachment hearing that President Trump engaged in a politically-charged quid pro quo, Mr. Trump focused on the part of his testimony that would help his case: Sondland said Mr. Trump told him on a September 9 call that he wanted "nothing" and "no quid pro quo" from Ukraine's president. September 9 is the day the whistleblower's complaint was formally filed with Congress.

Watch: Farmer groups hold ‘rail roko’ in Punjab; BJP & Congress trade charges

Farmer groups in Punjab have started their three day long ‘rail roko’ agitation against the three agriculture bills. Farmers were seen gathering on railway tracks as part of their protests. Special passenger trains running from the railways' Ferozepur division have been cancelled fully or partially from September 24 to 26 in view of the farmer outfits' three-day rail roko protest. The call for 'rail roko' agitation was given by the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee and later different farmers' outfits extended their support to it. Parliament has passed the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill; Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill; and Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill and they now await the President’s nod to become laws. Meanwhile, BJP and the Congress are involved in a war of words over the bills. While Congress said that the BJP government is trying to make farmers slaves and help their ‘corporate friends’, BJP has hit back saying that the Congress should have discussed their issues in Parliament rather than boycott the session. Watch the full video for all the details.

‘Netas, not farmers worried about agri bills’: Narendra Tomar’s jibe at oppn

Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has lashed out at the Congress and other opposition parties over the agri bills. Tomar said that Congress had mentioned these very points in their manifesto at the state level in Punjab and also the national manifesto. Tomar said that Congress should first admit that they are making a U-turn on what they had said in the manifesto. Tomar added that Congress is only trying to mislead the farmers and now it’s time for them to get justice and freedom. He said that the Congress had so much opportunity to work for farmers but succumbed to pressure from some quarters. Tomar slammed the opposition for the unruly scenes in the Rajya Sabha and added that there was no reason to send the bills to the select committee. ‘Farmers are now going to get the freedom to sell their produce anywhere they want, they will be free. Farmers are not going to have any problem, only politicians will,’ Tomar said. Watch the full video for all the details.
