Sonipat Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait hit back at a statement by Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar in Sonipat district of Haryana on Monday, saying that governments change when people gather. Tomar had said that laws would not be repealed only by the gathering of the crowd. Indian Farmers Union (BKU) leader Tikait warned that if the three new agricultural laws were not repealed, it would be difficult for the government to remain in power. He is organizing a farmers mahapanchayat in Haryana this month. At the Kisan Mahapanchayat in the Grain Mandi of Kharkhoda in Sonipat district, Tikait said that the Kisan Kisan agitation will continue till the agricultural laws are withdrawn.

Union Agriculture Minister Tomar said in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh on Sunday that the central government is ready to talk to the farmers who are protesting against the new agricultural laws, but the laws will not be canceled just because the crowd is gathering. He urged the farmers unions to tell the governments which provision in these new laws they find anti-farmer. In retaliation, Tikait said in the mahapanchayat, politicians are saying that agricultural laws cannot be withdrawn by gathering crowds. Whereas they should know that the crowd has the power to change the power. It is a different matter that the farmers have now only talked about withdrawal of agricultural laws, not withdrawal of power. From November 28 last year, farmers have been protesting against the demand for repeal of three agricultural laws on different boundaries of Delhi. Most of them are farmers from Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.

Tikait said, they (the government) should know that if the farmer can destroy his produce, then you are not in front of him. He said, there are many questions. It is not just agricultural legislation, but electricity (amendment) bill, seed bill… what kind of laws do they want to bring? Tikait also criticized the government for rising petrol-diesel prices. The farmer leader said, the current movement is not just of the farmer who grows the crop, but also of the one who buys the ration. It is also that of a small farmer who makes a living from two animals. There are also those laborers who make a living from the income from the weekly market. He said, these laws will destroy the poor. It is not just one law, many such laws will come. Tikait said the government would have to negotiate with the 40-member committee.
