BKU leader Rakesh Tikait on Sunday came down heavily on the government’s action against farmers terming them ‘Sarkari Talibani’.

“Yesterday’s attack on famers has proved that Sarkari Talibani has taken over the country. They call us Khalistani and yesterday an officer ordered cops to hit farmers on the head. What else would qualify them as Talibanis,” said BKU leader Rakesh Tikait while addressing a Kisan Mahapanchayat in Nuh.

Demanding action against SDM, Karnal, Aayush Sinha, Tikait said he should be posted in Naxal-affected areas.

Sinha, who is duty magistrate, was caught in a video reportedly asking cops to show no mercy and hit farmers on the head.

Calling the Kisan Credit Card scheme as a disguise to encroach on lands, Tikait asked farmers to sell their produce to government at twice the price.

“Modi promised doubling our income in 2022 so let’s do it and sell our produce to them at double rate on January 1, 2022.They have crossed all limits and now we will show no tolerance,” he added.

Farmer leader Yogender Yadav, who was also present, urged the farmers to reach in high numbers at Muzzafar Nagar Kisan Rally on September 5.

Meanwhile, Congress MLA from Nuh Aftab Ahmed asked the government to act on Karnal lathi-charge.

“They have reached their lowest and can’t stoop any further. If they sit quiet now they will lose all rights to even seek pardon,” he said.
