Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait has said the ongoing protest against the three central agriculture laws will end only with a mutual understanding with the government and not by the intervention of the court, according to a release.
On 27th September The Samyukta Kisan Morcha, an umbrella body of 40 farm unions, observed a national shutdown to mark one year since President Ram Nath Kovind gave his assent to the three controversial laws and 10 months since thousands of farmers set up camp at Delhi’s border points to voice their protest.
Speaking at the 11th Bhartiya Chhatra Sansad virtually, Tikait appealed to young people to step out of their homes and join the ‘revolution’, said a release issued by the organisers.
‘Today the country witnessed Bharat Bandh. I feel the government is making senseless amendments to the laws and policies. The government wants to sell the valuable resources of the country, they want to sell the lands,’ the release quoted Tikait as saying.
He said it is high time for the youth to step out of their homes and join the revolution.
‘I feel this will strengthen the revolution immensely,’ he added.
