Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait warned that if the central government does not accept the demands of the farmers, then power will be cut to 16 states. Tikait’s warning came during a media interaction in Bharatpur on Saturday while going to a mahapanchayat in Dausa, Rajasthan. Tikait said, “There is no government at the center and traders are ruling the country.” They have sold all government institutions and the people of the country need to show the way out to such people sitting in the government. ”
He said, “Any party becomes a dictator if it gets an absolute majority in Parliament or the Legislative Assembly.” The central government is planning to sell the farmers’ land, while the public is facing unemployment and starvation. “I think the farmer movement will continue for five to six months.” It is unfortunate for democracy that there is no opposition in the country. If the opposition were alive then the agitation of the farmers on the road would have been ideally fought in Parliament. ”He said that although the farmers are committed to continue the agitation against these three black agricultural laws.
A day earlier, Tikait had addressed a mahapanchayat at Assandh in Karnal district, stating that the fight is not only for the farmers, but also for the poor, petty traders. He said that the farmers are ready for a long battle and this movement will last long. We have made preparations from November to December. Tikait reiterated that the Center should withdraw the agricultural laws and provide legal guarantee on the MSP. He said that the new agricultural laws will adversely affect not only the farmers but also other sections.
