“We will announce it and then march towards Delhi. This time 40 lakh tractors will be there instead of four lakh tractors,” Rakesh Tikait said.
If the Centre does not repeal the three new agriculture laws, the protesting farmers will gherao parliament, farmer leader Rakesh Tikait said on Tuesday.
The BKU leader asked farmers to be ready as the call for ”Delhi march” can be given at any time.
Rakesh Tikait was addressing the Kisan Mahapanchayat of United Kisan Morcha in Sikar, Rajasthan Tuesday.
“This time the call will be for parliament gherao. We will announce it and then march towards Delhi. This time 40 lakh tractors will be there instead of four lakh tractors,” he said.
The protesting farmers would plough the parks near India Gate and grow crops there, Mr Tikait said, adding that the leaders of the United Front will decide the date to gherao the parliament.
The farmers leader also stressed that there was a conspiracy to malign the country’s farmers on January 26, when violence had broken out in the national capital during their tractor parade.
“The farmers of the country love the tricolor, but not the leaders of this country,” he said.
Farmers are openly challenging the government that if it does not repeal all three contentious agricultural laws and does not implement the MSP, then the farmers of the country will also demolish the godowns of big companies, Mr Tikait added.
He said that the United Front will also give a date for this soon.
Other than Rakesh Tikait, Swaraj movement leader Yogendra Yadav, National Vice President of All India Kisan Sabha Amra Ram, National General Secretary of Kisan Union, Chaudhary Yudhvir Singh and others also addressed the Mahapanchayat.
