Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) spokesperson Rakesh Tikait blamed the Narendra Modi govt for the attack on his convoy.

They (attackers) were saying, 'Rakesh Tikait, Go Back’. Where should I go? They hurled stones and used lathis. Why are they fighting us, we are farmers, not a political party,” Tikait said.
