Rakesh Tikait said – Government should listen to us
Rakesh Tikait, national spokesperson of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), said that the law should be withdrawn if the disease is major. Farmers’ organizations have opened a front since the last week of November against the central agricultural laws. Farmers’ organizations demand that the central government withdraw all three agricultural laws and enact the Minimum Support Price (MSP) law. This movement of farmers continues even in the midst of the second wave of Corona epidemic. Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait said in a conversation with news agency ANI that the law should be withdrawn if the disease is major. With this, he asked why are the farmers here? The farmers are sitting here peacefully, they will not go. Solve this by talking. We are sitting in a peaceful manner, the government listens to us.
Earlier, the farmer leader tweeted that the three black laws of agriculture will prove to be a trap for the farmers, the movement will continue till the law is repealed. While the central government had made it clear that it is ready to amend the agricultural laws. Several rounds of talks have been held between the Central Government and the Farmers’ Organizations, which have so far been inconclusive.
Movement continues amid infection
The country is facing the second wave of Corona. In such a situation, the health system of the central and state governments has collapsed. However, now cases of infection are gradually decreasing. But still the agitation of farmers organizations continues and they have made it clear that they will not go home till the bill is returned.
