Farmers to take out 'Kisan Tractor Yatra'

The tractor march will be headed by Gaurav Tikait, son of Rakesh Tikait.

As the farmers protest against the three contentious farm laws nearing its eight-month mark, farmers are expected to take out a ‘Kisan Tractor Yatra’ from Shamli in Uttar Pradesh to Delhi’s Singhu border.
 
According to Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), the tractor march will be headed by Gaurav Tikait, son of Rakesh Tikait. A large number of farmers have been camping at Delhi’s Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur border demanding the repeal of three new farms laws which have been put on hold by the Supreme Court.
 
They have also been demanding a legal guaranteee for the MSP. Yesterday, Agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar said that the government is ready for talks and amend the laws but won’t repeal.
 
He asked farmer unions to come out with their proposals except repealing of the laws.
