The National Spokesperson of BKIU said that they (government) have announced withdrawal of all three agricultural laws, but that will not solve the problem. He said that there are many other problems which farmers need to solve.
“Farmers’ agitation will continue till the central government resumes talks on other demands including minimum support price for crops,” Tikait told reporters here.
Tikait and other farmer leaders took part in a ‘maha dharna’ organized by the Telangana unit of the All India Kisan Sangharsh Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) to mark one year of the farmers’ agitation.
Telangana Chief Minister K.K. On Chandrashekhar Rao’s announcement, Tikait said that the Central Government should also give him ex-gratia amount.
He said that in the same way the Central Government should get the Seed Bill, Insecticides, M.S. Issues related to implementation of Swaminathan Committee recommendations should also be discussed with the farmers.
He said that if the government gives guarantee of minimum support price, then the farmers here (Telangana) will also be benefited. Earlier, while addressing the dharna, Tikait alleged that companies are running the Narendra Modi government.
