'Farmers' Protest: Mamata assures support to Rakesh Tikait

Tikait and Singh had met the TMC chief to discuss issues related to agriculture and local farmers.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Wednesday assured her full support to the farmers’ movement against the contentious agriculture laws, at a meeting with farmer leaders Rakesh Tikait and Yudhvir Singh.


Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Tikait and Singh had met the TMC chief to discuss issues related to agriculture and local farmers.


After the meeting, Mamata announced that her “support for the farmers’ movement will be there” and in an obvious jibe at the Centre, said that “India is hungrily waiting for policies which will help in fighting Covid-19, assist farmers and industry.”


Thousands of farmers, mostly from Punjab and Haryana, have been camping at the borders of the national capital for the past six months in protest against the laws that were passed by Parliament in September last year.
