Let us tell you that thousands of farmers across the country including Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh have been sitting on a dharna on the borders of Delhi for the last ten months and are demanding the repeal of agricultural laws implemented in September last year. Rakesh Tikait said in “Kisan Mahapanchayat” in Panipat- “It has been ten months since the movement. The government should listen openly that if we have to agitate for ten years, we are ready.” The Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader said that the Center will have to withdraw these laws.

He told the farmers to “keep your tractors ready, they may be needed in Delhi anytime.” The mahapanchayat took place a day before the “Bharat Bandh” called by the United Kisan Morcha on September 27. On the completion of ten months of the movement, the United Kisan Morcha has called a Bharat Bandh on 27 September.

Rakesh Tikait said that if the present government does not withdraw these laws, then the coming governments will have to take it back. He said, “Those who want to rule the country will have to withdraw these laws. We will not allow these laws to be implemented, we will continue our agitation.
Attacking the central government, Tikait said, “They have screwed up the wrong place. Had they known about the mood of these farmers, they would not have brought these black laws. These farmers will force this government to bow down.” Tikait appealed to the young farmers to make full use of social media to strengthen the movement against these laws. He said that there is a huge responsibility on his shoulders to oppose the propaganda which is being spread sometimes to malign the movement.
After the program, Haryana BKU (Chaduni) chief Gurnam Singh Chadhuni told reporters in Panipat that they would have to intensify the agitation if the government did not pay heed to their demands. He appealed to all sections of the society to make ‘Bharat Bandh’ a success.
