The chief of the Bhartiya Kisan union and son of the former popular Kisan leader Mahender Singh Tikaith, Rakesh Tikaith has while thanking all the anti BJP opposition parties and their leaders for extending their unstinted support to the ongoing Farmers agitation since the last 62 days, urged not to carry their party flags and posters in the tractor rally on 26 th January and derive political capital out of it and appealed all the farmers to be vigilant against the anti national forces and elements allegedly hell bent upon creating division and disturbances in this historic rally. He urged them to rather carry national flags while participating in this rally.
The prominent kisan leader of Rashtriya Kisan union Rakesh Tikaith was addressing the agitating farmers at Ghazipur border on Sunday before being granted permission by the Delhi police to hold the rally on outer ring road of the national capital after the Republic Day parade. Speaking at length he urged the participants of the tractor rally to properly wear their green caps holding national flag with due respect and ensuring that no outside mischeivious element enters this tractor rally to create disturbance.
Rakesh Tikaith was infuriated at the reports about stopping of the tractors by district administration and UP police in various areas of Aligarh etc who are heading towards the borders of Delhi to peacefully participate in this historic rally.
He urged the Uttar Pradesh administration not to stop these tractors allowing them to participate in this tractor rally failing which they will be constrained to break police cordon as due permission has already been granted to them by Delhi police and the union government to carry out the peaceful tractor rally.
While appealing to the farmers and the participants to maintain decorum, descipline and peace in the tractor rally, Rajesh Tikaith said that the parliament session of the budget session is also commencing on 29 th January and the farmers of the country would be keenly watching them as to what would they be doing to support or speak for the farmers in the parliament session.
Reiterating the demands of lakhs of farmers of the country to stand committed to nothing else except their long pending demand of getting all the three agricultural laws repealed and introduction of a new law on MSP, Rakesh Tikaith said that come what may, the ultimate and only demand of the lakhs of agitating farmers will be to accede to no less than getting the three black laws repealed.
Rakesh Tikaith revealed that about three lakh tractors from all over the country with major share from Haryana, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh are participating in this tractor rally with the prestige of Kisan leaders and organisation involved to the core.
