The deadlock between the government and the farmers regarding agricultural laws is not getting reduced. Today, Rakesh Tikait ate food while sitting on the road. While the farmers are not ready for anything less than the cancellation of these laws, the government is talking about the reforms in these laws after taking the opinion of the farmers. The farmers say that they will not return from Delhi until the laws are withdrawn. Rakesh Tikait says that this movement will run till October.
He said that the government wants to stop eating, so we are eating food sitting on the road. The police warning was written in the place where Rakesh Tikait chose for this protest. When the police said that Section 144 was imposed, he sat there and ate his food.
It is worth noting that Rakesh Tikait, who has held a front on the Ghazipur border with thousands of farmers, is getting full support from leaders of other parties.
