New Delhi, April 1, 2021: Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader and spokesperson Rakesh Tikait informed ANI that farmers should harvest their wheat crop by May 10, after which, their movement will gain momentum. Farmers have been camping at many border points around Delhi for over four months These protesting farmers are adamant about their demand for the withdrawal of three new agricultural laws imposed by the Central government.
“The farmers’ agitation against the three new farm bills enforced upon us will persevere for eight months. The farmers will have to agitate as because if no action is taken, these farmers would lose their land,” Tikait said.
Several meetings have taken place between the Central government and the agitating farm leaders. However, no solution has come out of them. The farmers are adamant and will not end their protest until the three agricultural laws are withdrawn completely and legal guarantees for the Minimum Support Price (MSP) are met.
