‘Will march to Parliament with 40 lakh tractors’: Rakesh Tikait warns Centre

Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait has issued a fresh warning to the Modi government over the farm laws.

Addressing a rally in Sikar, Rajasthan, Tikait said that farmers would now launch a fresh tractor rally to the Parliament.

‘This time the call will be for parliament gherao.

We will announce it and then march towards Delhi.

This time 40 lakh tractors will be there instead of four lakh tractor,’ Tikait said.

He appealed to the government to repeal the laws and make a law on MSP failing which they would plough the parks near India Gate and grow crops there as a mark of protest.

Farmers have been protesting against the Centre’s farm laws alleging that they will benefit corporate and harm the interests of farmers.

While the Centre has agreed to make amendments in the laws, the farmers have insisted on complete withdrawal of the laws.

‘Who else…’: Rakesh Tikait blames Modi govt for attack on convoy in Alwar

Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) spokesperson Rakesh Tikait blamed the Narendra Modi govt for the attack on his convoy. Stones were allegedly pelted at the farmer leader's car, damaging the rear windshield. “The government is responsible, who else can it be? It's their youth wing. 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. The alleged attack took place on Friday afternoon in Rajasthan’s Alwar district. Tikait, however, was not in his car when the stones were allegedly pelted.
