‘We will play an important role in UP elections’
At the same time, Rakesh Tikait said that even if the central government wants to talk to us, it is ready to talk to them. Regarding the upcoming UP elections, he said that we are going to play an important role in the UP elections because the new agricultural laws are black laws for the farmers. We will put pressure on the central government to end it.

‘We are not in politics, we only talk about farmers’
When asked about Mamta Banerjee’s national politics, Tikait said that we can support only in cases of farmer problem, we are not in politics. Tikait and other farmer leaders have been protesting at the borders of Delhi for the past one year against three laws passed by Parliament. They believe that these laws will lead to marketization of agriculture and also will not provide adequate protection to small farmers from exploitation by big retail companies.
