Farmers Protest: BKU leader Rakesh Tikait warned center of reinvigorating their protest at Delhi borders if demands not met

News Desk: Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait on Monday warned the government that farmers would reinvigorate their protest at the Delhi border if their demands are not met till November 26. “The central government has time till November 26, after that from November 27, farmers will reach the border at the protest sites around Delhi by tractors from villages and strengthen the protest site with solid fortifications” Tikait tweeted.

Earlier on Sunday, the farmer leader had threatened to turn ‘government offices across the country into Galla Mandi, if there is an attempt to forcibly remove the farmers from the borders’. Tikait had said that if the administration pulls down farmers’ tents at protest sites, they will set tents at police stations and District Magistrates’ offices.

“We have come to know that the administration is trying to pull down the tents here with the help of JCB. If they do that, the farmers will set up their tents at Police stations, DM offices” said the BKU leader.

His warning to the Centre comes days after Delhi Police started removing barricades and cemented blocks put up at the Gazipur and Tikri borders, allowing traffic movement from New Delhi to Haryana.
