Bharatiya Kisan Union chief Rakesh Tikait on Monday alleged that Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand police have been “torturing” farmers by seizing their tractor trolleys to cease them from becoming a member of protests towards the Centre’s new agri legal guidelines. He threatened to dam the Ghazipur border if the farmers from the 2 states weren’t allowed to hitch the agitation.

Hundreds of farmers are protesting at varied border factors of Delhi towards the Farmers (Empowerment and Safety) Settlement of Value Assurance and Farm Providers Act, 2020; the Farmers Produce Commerce and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; and the Important Commodities (Modification) Act, 2020. They’re demanding that these legal guidelines, which have been enacted in September, be repealed.

“State governments shouldn’t intervene in our agitation and cease making an attempt to create hindrance as it is going to extend until our demand of scrapping farm legal guidelines isn’t fulfilled,” Tikait stated.
