Rise above party politics: BKU leader to farmers

Yamunanagar, January 13

Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Naresh Tikait has exhorted farmers to get united and rise above party politics.

“It doesn’t matter to which party farmers owe their allegiance. They must not forget that they are farmers first. Therefore, they should rise above party politics and unite to save the future of our children,” he said while addressing farmers at a toll plaza in the district’s Gadhaula village district today.

He claimed the Centre’s new farm laws would destroy agriculture. “The Centre’s rigid attitude has led to the deadlock. Its flip side is that farmers have come together to fight for a just cause,” the BKU leader added. — TNS
