Tikait serves government ultimatum: 2 October

We gave time to the government till 2 October to repeal the laws. Thereafter, we will do plan further: Rakesh Tikait, Bharatiya Kisan Union

|

Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) Rakesh Tikait today said that the agitating farmers had given the union government to yield by 2 October, repealing the farm laws. If the government does not agree, the farm unions agitating against the new laws would plan further protests, he said.

Speaking at the Ghazipur protest site, the 51-year-old BKU head said, “We have given to the government till 2 October to repeal the laws. After this, we will do further planning.” Tikait cautioned that they “won’t hold discussions with the government under pressure.”

“We won’t return home unless our demands are met,” Tikait reiterated, adding that a law be enforced on the minimum support price (MSP) of crop procurement.

In his interaction with reporters, Tikait claimed to have received a few inputs about some “miscreants trying to disrupt peace” during the chakka jam held today. “Because of these inputs, we had decided to call off the chakka jam in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand,” the union said.

Amid a stringent security set up installed around the Ghazipur protest site, Tikait interacted with the security personnel who were on the other side of the barricading. With a bowed head, he said, “My pranaam to you all. Now you all will protect my farms.”

Tikait, backed by an army of supporters, told police officials, “Nobody can touch the farmlands, the farmers will protect it. Both farmers and soldiers should come forward for it.”

The farmers’ unions conducted a three-hour ‘chakka jam’ across the country – except in UP, Uttarakhand and Delhi – today between 12 noon and 3 pm. Police had intensified their security measures and deployed personnel at all important points in and other states to maintain law and order.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Home Affairs has ordered the suspension of internet services at Singhu, Ghazipur and Tikri borders of and other adjoining areas too till 23:59 hours on February 6. The decision has been taken to ‘maintain public safety and averting public emergency’, a home ministry official said.

Ten Metro stations, which were closed on Saturday for the duration of the ‘chakka jam’, reopened after the protest ended at 3 pm.

Farmers have been protesting at different borders of the national capital since November 26 last year against the three newly enacted farm laws: Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and farm Services Act 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.

Eleven rounds of talks have been held between the government and the protesting farmer unions over their demand for repealing farm laws. The government had offered to put the new farm laws on hold for about 18 months but the unions had rejected the offer.

महाभारत का एक श्लोक अधूरा पढ़ा जाता है क्यों...??

शायद गांधी जी की वजह से...

"अहिंसा परमो धर्म:"

जबकि पूर्ण श्लोक इस तरह से है:-

"अहिंसा परमो धर्म:,
धर्म हिंसा तदेव च"।

अर्थात :- अहिंसा मनुष्य का परम धर्म है...
किंतु धर्म की रक्षा के लिए हिंसा करना उससे भी श्रेष्ठ है...!!
