After the start of the peasant movement, four leaders of the United Kisan Morcha came to meet Rakesh Tikait, leader of the Bharatiya Kisan Union at the UP border on Saturday. In the mahapanchayat held earlier, however, Tikait also disagreed with his statement dated 2 October deadline on Morcha’s supremacy.
four leaders of the United Kisan Morcha (SKF) for the first time since the start of the Ghaziabad farmer movement, shared the stage with the Indian Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait at the UP Gate on Saturday. Their presence at the UP Gate is significant because Tikait had agreed on the supremacy of the United Kisan Morcha a day earlier. Tikait was speaking at a mahapanchayat in Bahadurgarh, Haryana.
The protests were withdrawn by Tikait following an uproar during the tractor parade on Republic Day. Since then, both his influence and stature have increased in the peasant movement. But questions were raised against his statement dated 2 October deadline on the United Kisan Morcha. Tikait had given this deadline to the government to withdraw all three new agricultural laws.
homecoming only when the law is over, but in Bahadurgarh, Tikait took a U-turn and made it clear that there is no such deadline and until the law is back This movement will not be taken. He also said that on the Singhu border, where the joint Kisan Morcha has its base, it will remain the main office of the farmer unions.
These four leaders had come at the UP Gate.
Farmer leader Gurnam Singh Chadhuni was among the leaders of the United Front who spoke to the protesters at the UP Gate. A week earlier, Tikait was reprimanded for the October 2 deadline. He was accompanied by other leaders – Balbir Singh Rajewal, Darshan Pal and Kavita Kuruganti. Chadhuni also demanded a high-level inquiry into the death of agitator Navrita Singh, who was killed on 26 January.
Plans to make UP toll plaza free
Darshan Pal, head of the Revolutionary Farmers Union, said, ‘The farmer movement will intensify in the coming days. We will soon free toll tolls in UP like Rajasthan. In the coming days, the panchayat will play an important role. We are preparing them after a mahapanchayat. ‘
Farmers angry with ‘agitator’ statement
BKU (Rajewal) chief Balbir Singh Rajewal was angry with Prime Minister Modi’s ‘agitator’ statement in Parliament. He appealed to the farmers to give a befitting reply to the BJP in the upcoming elections. He said, ‘PM has insulted all the farmers by calling us agitators. I would like to know whether this is the personal views of the Prime Minister or the thinking of his party. I will appeal to the farmers to respond to this political abuse. Remember this insult to the farmers when the BJP leaders come to ask for votes next time. ‘
Tikait will also bring farmers in summer, he said that if summer is coming, farmers will bring generators to the movement site. He said, ‘Just as farmers are bringing water from different rivers, similarly they will bring fuel for generators. This movement will continue under any circumstances. ‘
Residents of this area have sat on the dharna themselves near the farmers’ dharna under the banner of ‘Ghaziabad Utthan Samiti’. These people were referring to the inconvenience caused due to the Delhi-Meerut Expressway closure. Ashutosh Gupta of the committee said, ‘We are not against the farmers but we are against the so-called farmer leaders who have held the surrounding area including Delhi-Meerut-Expressway hostage. Because of this, there is a big problem in getting people to come. ‘
