The farmers, who were on their way home from the UP Gate, carried out the Fateh March
For two hours on the border of Ghazipur, the farmers celebrated the victory and danced to folk and patriotic songs amidst a rain of flowers. At the front of the convoy, Rakesh Tikait came out to greet the people waving the tricolor flag and the flag of the devotees. Farmers’ respect is back after 13 months of fighting. The oppressed young man had the freedom to speak his mind. The movement is not over yet. The movement was suspended on the basis of an agreement with the Government of India.
Wednesday morning at UP Gate is like a closing fair. The farmers packed their goods. Some danced, some sang. By 9 a.m. large crowds had gathered to view the farmers and take part in the triumphs. Bhakti flags and tricolor flags were hoisted on farmers’ vehicles at several places. When Rakesh Tikait reached the UP gate at about ten o’clock, the crowd gathered behind him. Killed for taking a farewell selfie with him. UP gate changed with Kisan Ekta Zindabad slogan. The last day also saw the joy of many farmers returning home and the pain of being separated from each other. The women were emotional in each other’s throats.
Movement did not stop: Rakesh Tikait
BKU spokesperson Rakesh Tikait said the farmer was returning home after 13 months. He said that three laws have been withdrawn and talks are underway with the Government of India on the basis of the agreement. With that the movement did not end, it was postponed. On MSP, he said the debate on the issue has started in the country. He told the UP Farmers’ Mission that he would inform the governments on the day the Model Code of Conduct came into force. He has two months now. Tikait also surrounded the state government on the current rate.
In Haryana, the current rate is Rs 35 per horsepower, while in UP the bill is Rs 175 per horsepower. The farmers’ SIT has already stated that the SIT report on the Lakhimpur incident was correct and that it was a premeditated conspiracy. The government should take action against Union Home Affairs Minister Ajay Theni and his son. It was suggested that the issue of doubling the income of farmers should be taken up in January. He thanked the administration, police and municipal sanitation workers.
