Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait has said their agitation will continue till the three contentious agriculture laws are withdrawn.
He was speaking in Ramrajn town in Muzaffarnagar to mark the completion of 100 days of farmers’ protests at the Delhi borders against the central farm legislations.

The farmers are demanding an entire withdrawal of the three farm laws and therefore the agitation will continue till the govt meets our demands, Mr Tikiat said on Saturday.

On the occasion, he flagged off a tractors’ rally, which, he said, will travel across across districts of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand and can reach farmers’ protest site in Ghazipur on March 27.

Meanwhile, Union minister and Member of Parliament from Muzaffarnagar Sanjeev Balyan said the three agri laws are going to be beneficial for the farmers.

If one farmer’s land is removed thanks to the farm laws, i will be able to resign as an MP. The laws were enacted in accordance with the needs of the farmers, he said.

Thousands of farmers are protesting since late November at the Delhi borders with Haryana and Uttar Pradesh , demanding a rollback of the Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020; and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.

The protesting farmers have expressed apprehension that these laws would pave the way for the dismantling of the minimum support price (MSP) system, leaving them at the “mercy” of massive corporations.

However, the govt has maintained that the new laws will bring better opportunities to farmers and introduce new technologies in agriculture.
