BKU Leader Rakesh Tikait Breaks Into Tears, Cries “BJP Conspiracy Against Farmers”

Rakesh Tikait broke into tears and said, “Farmers are being tortured. A conspiracy is being hatched to kill them.”


Ghazipur| Two days after the violence during the tractor rally in Delhi on 26 January, the administration asked the farmers to vacate the Ghazipur border area. Following the warning of the police, several farmers who sat on the dharna left from there. By evening, a large number of police from Delhi and UP reached the Ghazipur border.

After this, Rakesh Tikait, the leader of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), who earlier gave a call of not moving from the spot came out with tears. He said crying, “Farmers are being tortured. A conspiracy is being hatched to kill them. If the government does not withdraw the law, I will commit suicide. I will not let the farmers of this country go to waste.”

Tikait said, “There will be such a big conspiracy, I did not know. I went against all the people and voted for the BJP. My wife had voted for someone else, but I voted for the BJP. I betrayed them by voting for them. This government is trying to discredit the farmer fraternity all over the country.”

Earlier on Thursday conflicting statements were made by Tikait brothers, leading to confusion.
On the Ghazipur border, Rakesh Tikait had said on Thursday afternoon,” Neither will I surrender, nor will I end the protest. If the bullet is to be fired, it will go here.” After an hour, he was seen crying. However, the president of BKU and brother of Rakesh Tikait had said that they will end the Ghazipur protest in the afternoon. However, by evening, he called the Kisan Panchayat in Muzaffarnagar and talked about continuing the movement. This mahapanchayat will be held again from 11 am on Friday.
