Nohar: “If the government calls us, we will definitely go for talks with them.” Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait who came to Rajasthan’s Nohar to address a farmer rally of thousands said that he was open to a dialogue with the central government on farm laws, however he claimed that “it will take them (centre) one or two more months” before they call for discussion again.
The Kisan Mahapanchayat was organised at the NDB Government College on Monday on the call of Sanyukt Kisan Morcha.
Tikait’s popularity can be ascertained from the fact that farmers waited for several hours to have a glimpse of ‘their’ leader and when he did arrive, Tikait did not disappoint in making scathing attacks at the Modi government.
“Agriculture is being ruined by the Centre’s black laws.
If the country’s youth suffers, there will be a revolution.
Through these laws, the Central Government has put a question on ‘roti’ of the poor, labourers and farmers.
Industrialists like Adani and Ambani are working to create inflation, unemployment and hunger in the country.
When the revolution of poor and famished will come, it will ruin the rule of these robbers,” Tikait charged.
“Irrespective of the government creating lakhs of barriers, farmers have the solution to every problem.
We will continue the fight making our tractors, our tanks.
Until a law is enacted for the minimum support price, our fight will continue. Revolution is the only solution to farmers’ problems,” he said. (Rohtash Saini)
