Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait said on Tuesday that the farmers’ agitation against the central agricultural laws could go on till October. He has said that until the three agricultural laws are repealed, the protesting farmers will not go to their homes. Our slogan is that if the law does not return, it is not homecoming. This movement will not end before October.
On the violence during Republic Day, Rakesh Tikait said that the officers had shown the way to the youth who were hoisting the flag at the Red Fort. This was done to tarnish the image of Punjabi society and to make the farmers anti-national. A statement issued by the United Kisan Morcha said that talks with the central government cannot take place until the farmers taken into custody are released and the harassment of farmers by the police and administration is not stopped.
The organization has alleged that cement walls are being built on the roads and spikes are being laid on the roads. Internet is also being shut down at the site of agitation and people of BJP-RSS are attacking farmers. He has also said that so far no proposal for talks has come from the government. Let us tell you that since November 2020, farmers have been agitating against agricultural laws on the borders near Delhi.
Shiv Sena entered entry into the movement
The farmers’ movement is getting full support from opposition parties. The Shiv Sena has also made an entry in the peasant movement. On the instructions of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra and Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, Shiv Sena veteran Sanjay Raut reached the Ghazipur border to meet the farmers. It was said on behalf of Sanjay Raut that after the violence of 26 January, the kind of vandalism that has been faced and attempts have been made to suppress the farmers, we felt that it is our responsibility to stand with the farmers. After Sanjay Raut’s visit, farmer leader Rakesh Tikait said that the farmers’ movement is not political and no leader has been given a place or mic on the stage.
