The pace of the peasant movement seems to be largely stagnant. At the same time, the government gave no indication of talking to the farmers’ representatives again. In such a situation, Rakesh Tikait said that the government is creating a framework against the farmers.
Rakesh Tikait, leader of the Indian Farmers Union (BKU), alleged that the “silence” of the central government over the past few days was an indication that the government was building some structures against the farmers’ movement. When the talks between the government and the farmers’ union ended, he said the government would have to come up with a proposal for talks again.
“The silence of the central government for 15-20 days indicates that something is going to happen. The government is setting up a framework to take some action against the movement,” Bijnu spokesperson Rakesh Tikait told reporters on Sunday night while visiting Bijnor’s Afzalgarh in Udham Singh Nagar, Uttarakhand. “The farmers will not go back until they get it. The farmer is ready. He will look after the agriculture and will also make a movement.

Tikait said that mahapanchayats would be held in many parts of the country by March 24. When asked about Rex on the Red Fort campus during a farmers ’protest on Republic Day, he complained that the government had created all these problems.
Asked by farmers about the three agricultural laws to destroy their permanent crops in different places, Tikait said, “BKU is telling farmers that such a time has not come yet but the government is trying to prevent farmers from taking such steps. Why doesn’t it apply?
While hinting at increasing the farmers’ movement at the district level in Uttar Pradesh, Tikait said that now that the ready-made wheat crop is coming, if wheat is not bought in the MSP, the government is responsible and the farmers will sit in front of the DM’s office.
