Rakesh Tikait's blunt - 'Kisan Andolan will either end with dialogue or bullets'

New Delhi: Indian Farmers Union (Bhakiu) leader Rakesh Tikait on Thursday asked the Central government to either end the months-long farmers' agitation with talks or with bullets. Tikait said the farmers are ready to hold talks but unconditionally. Tikait said this while talking to the media. Tikait said that the government wants the farmer to talk to him conditionally, but it will not happen because the farmers have not been agitating for the last 8 months to listen to the Government.

Tikait further said, "The government is putting a condition for dialogue. They are saying that there can be a discussion to change the laws. The farmers have not been sitting here for 8 months to obey the orders of the Government. If the Government wants to negotiate, do it unconditionally.'' He also said that whether the government ends the farmers' agitation through dialogue or with bullets, but the agitation will not end till the agricultural laws are abolished. Tikait said this after an appeal by Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar.

Tomar had asked the agitating farmers to end their agitation and come forward for talks as the government was ready for talks. Tomar had also assured the farmers that the Agricultural Produce Market Committees (APMC) would continue and procurement of agricultural produce at Minimum Support Price (MSP) would continue. At the same time, they will be further strengthened. Tomar had said that farmers have been told several times that the government is fully prepared to discuss their provisions instead of abolishing agricultural laws.
