Those Who Get Stuck In Feb 6 Protests Will Be Given Food & Water: BKU

Mumbai: Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait on Thursday said the people that will be stuck in the February 6 ‘chakka jaam’ will be given food and water.

Rakesh Tikait while talking to the media said that “On February 6, there was to be a three-hour-long cycle jam.” It happened in Delhi but everywhere outside Delhi. Food and water will be provided to those trapped in it. We will tell them what the government is doing to us.”

Reacting to the support of Rihanna, Greta over the farmers’ protest, Rakesh Tikait said that there is nothing wrong with Hollywood actors supporting the movement. “There is no harm in Hollywood actors supporting the farmers’ movement, I know them personally, but they are supporting them without any expectation. If Samyukta Kisan Morcha has thanked them, Kisan Union will do the same,” Rakesh Tikait added.

On Wednesday, in a case of demonstrating strength by farmers protesting, Rakesh Tikait addressed a huge rally and warned the government that it might be difficult to remain in power if the new agri-marketing laws are not repealed.

Just before Tikait began his speech at the “Mahapanchayat” in Kandela village, the platform on which the peasant leaders gathered collapsed under his weight. No one was hurt and Tikait went to address the gathering. But the episode created an uproar and he and the organizers had to repeatedly ask people to remain calm.

Calling for the “wapsi” (withdrawal) of the new central laws, Tikait indirectly warned the Narendra Modi government that he could lose his “gaddi” (power) if the movement continued.

“We have so far talked about “bill wapsi” (repealing the farm laws). The government should listen carefully. What will you do if the youth call for “gaddi wapsi” (removal from power)?” he said. He asked the Centre to repeal the three laws and frame a new one to assure the continuation of the minimum support price (MSP) system.
