Tikait will seek support from the entire country against the law

Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait on Sunday said that till the demands of the farmers are not accepted, he will not let the government sit peacefully, 40 farmer leaders leading the protest against the agricultural laws of the Center. 

The whole country will roam around seeking support. Addressing the mahapanchayat of farmers at Indri Anaj Mandi in the Karnal district, Tikait reiterated the demand for withdrawal of the disputed agricultural laws. He said, until the government does not talk to the protesting leaders and agrees with our demands, we will not let them sit in peace. 

He alleged that the public distribution system would be dismantled by the Centre's agricultural laws. These laws will affect not only the farmers but also the daily laborers and other sections. Questioning the intention of agricultural laws, Tikait said, the godowns became first and the law came later. Do farmers not know that these laws are in favor of big corporates? He said, whatever decision will be taken from the committee of farmer leaders will be acceptable to all.
