Farmer leader Rakesh Tikite on Sunday said he would visit Gujarat soon to support the ongoing agitation against the Center’s controversial laws. Tikit made this statement when he met the Gujarat and Maharashtra group at Gazipur on the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border. Tikite has been camping on the Gazipur border since November.
A national spokesperson for the Indian Kisan Union (BKU) said that the new laws would only benefit the corporate as farmers would eventually be unable to take any part of their agricultural products. To cite one example, “the price of milk in the village is around Rs. 20-22 per liter.
According to a statement issued by Biku, “Big business is building large warehouses to store food and when there is a shortage of food in the market, they sell it at their option price.” , “We do not allow such a situation to occur.” We only care about it and we will not leave this country’s crop under corporate control. “Gandhidham’s group in Gujarat presented“ Charakha ”to Tikit.
He said, “Gandhiji used Charkha to drive the British out of India. Now we run corporate using this spinning wheel. We will soon mobilize support to go to Gujarat and show the farmers to repeal the new laws.” Thousands of farmers are demonstrating on the borders of Singu, Tikri and Ghazipur in Delhi, demanding that the central government repeal the new agricultural laws and provide minimum support price (MSP).
