Prime Minister need not seek apology from farmers, Rakesh Tikait
Mr. Tikait reacted that Union Agricultural Minister Narendra Singh Tomar statement over three repealed farms laws was intended to deceive farmers and would also humiliate the Prime Minister.
New Delhi: Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi need not seek an apology from the farmers, even farmers do not expect him to tender an apology, adding that farmers do not wish to tarnish the Prime Minister image abroad.
"We do not want the Prime Minister to apologize. We don't want to tarnish his reputation abroad. If any decision would be taken, it would not be done without the consent of farmers. We honestly cultivate the fields but Delhi did not pay attention to our demands," Rakesh Tikait tweeted.
His statement comes after the Centre withdraws the controversial farm laws in Parliament. Mr. Tikait reacted that Union Agricultural Minister Narendra Singh Tomar statement over three repealed farms laws was intended to deceive farmers and would also humiliate the Prime Minister.
Recently Mr. Tomar said in an event at Nagpur, the Centre will be brought back three farm laws. Some people did not like it. But the government is not disappointed, we moved a step back and will move forward again in the interest of the farmers, they are the backbone of the Indian rural economy. If the backbone is strengthened, the country will become stronger, Mr. Tomar said.
