Rakesh Tikait, the national spokesperson of the Bharatiya Kisan Union, has given a strange statement regarding the repeal of all three central agricultural laws. Speaking to reporters in Telangana on Thursday, Rakesh Tikait said that the central government has decided to repeal all three agriculture laws, but it will not solve them. The problem of farmers is similar to that. Until the central government talks to farmers and brings a law on Minimum Support Prices, our protest will continue.
PM Modi himself announced the withdrawal of all three central laws on 19 November. On this, the United Kisan Morcha expressed happiness but also opened the box of 6 other demands. The demand for making a law on MSP is prominent in this.
Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait had commented on the withdrawal of all three central agricultural laws by the Narendra Modi government. In this, he had said, It is true that the government has listened to us, but the movement will continue for now. He has also said that our demand for MSP is yet to be fulfilled.
According to Rakesh Tikait, the agitation will not end. Therefore, those demands remain intact. We cannot trust what the government is saying, as the policies kept changing. But till the farmers and the government do not meet, there is no sign of ending the agitation. These issues should be discussed.
Rakesh Tikait says that a letter was issued to the government recently. Only the Prime Minister will come and address the talks. The country is not an outsider, the farmers who have been martyred, will also be talked about. There are many such issues.
