“Earlier, farmers’ tractors were not allowed to enter Delhi. Now Amra Ram is taking his tractor to the parliament. Let Modiji stop it.”

Amra Ram, 69, is a first-time MP from Rajasthan’s Sikar constituency and prominent face among farmers across India, especially Rajasthan. On the first day of the 18th Lok Sabha session, the lone CPIM MP from the desert state rode a tractor to the parliament in Delhi.

In this conversation with Newslaundry, Ram spoke about why he rode a tractor to the parliament, Modi government, INDIA bloc “halting Modi’s dictatorship”, laws that need to be revoked, and the Left front’s dwindling electoral fortunes and dismal influence in Rajasthan. 

The politician, who has been a four-time MLA and is finally in the lower house after unsuccessfully contesting the Lok Sabha polls for seven times, said, “I come either first or third in the elections.” He also said that the Modi government “needs to revoke Agniveer” and a host of “black laws” introduced over the past 10 years.
