Rakesh Tikait, leader of the Bhartiya Kisan Union has reportedly said that farmers were ready to agitate and protest against the anti-farm laws for 10 years.

He also said that if the present government do not repeal the laws, the new government will have to. “Those who have to rule this country will have to repeal these laws,” he said.
As per the reports, he was addressing a mahapanchayat in Panipat on Sunday. Tikait was also accompanied by Gurnam Singh Chaduni. He urged the general public and all the sections of the society to be a part of the Bharat Bandh.
