Conspiracy being hatched to snatch away lands from farmers: Tikait

"A big conspiracy is being hatched to snatch away land from farmers. Big corporates are in search of your land. Youths will be unemployed if land is grabbed from farmers. Farmers will be given loans through Kisan Credit Cards taking land as collateral. When you fail to repay the loan, they will take away your land," he said.
