Stating that the continued farmers’ agitation may continue for subsequent five years, BKU leader Rakesh Tikait has urged farmers to form “the agitation a neighborhood of their routine life”.

Talking to the journalists in Hisar Friday, Tikait said, “Is this an enormous agitation? Till now, it’s on for the past five months only. If they will run the govt for five years, why the agitation can’t be continued for five years? The agitation too will continue for five years.” The farmer leader was lecture the media after attending a dharna being held by lawyers in Hisar since February 3 in support of farmers there.

Tikait said, “This agitation will continue within the entire country strongly. The farmers should keep specialise in their agricultural fields also as on the agitation. they ought to attend the agitation like they are going to their agricultural fields.”

The BKU leader expressed similar sentiments while addressing a gathering of farmers at a tract on a national highway in Hisar district.

“Many people invite how long this agitation will continue. Is five-month long agitation an enormous one?” he asked from the farmers. “The agitation must be made a neighborhood of our routine life like we add our homes and agricultural fields. within the way agitation goes on, it’s going to continue for months. We don’t know its fate and culmination,” added Tikait while addressing the farmers.

When asked about the continued protests by farmers against BJP leaders, Tikait said that if they (BJP leaders) will hold events, then farmers too will react.

“Do we’d like to supply garlands to BJP men? We are in battle mode. Does anybody distribute ladoos during a battle? the general public is giving them the prasad that they needed and can still do so.” The agitator farmers have announced a “social boycott” of the BJP and JJP leaders to precise their resentment against farm laws.Referring to the registration of a case against a journalist Rajesh Kundu, who had actively covered the farmer agitation, the BKU leader said the lawyers will fight the legal fight of journalists too. The journalists had earlier demanded that the scribes shouldn’t be targeted for “covering the agitation”. The Hisar Bar Association has already announced that it’ll fight all cases associated with the farmer agitation freed from cost.
