Noida (NewsReach) : Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait said about the results of the assembly elections of five states that the decision of the people is paramount, and expressed hope that the new governments of Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur will work for the upliftment of farmers and laborers. . This reaction of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) national spokesperson came on Thursday night after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was confirmed to have a majority in four states, including Uttar Pradesh, while the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won a majority in Punjab.
Tikait tweeted in Hindi, “The decision of the people is paramount in the great festival of democracy. The peasant movement showed its effect. We hope that all the governments that have been formed will work for the upliftment of farmers and laborers in their respective states. Congratulations to all on the victory.” The BKYU was part of the United Kisan Morcha (SKM), which led a 13-month-long farmers’ agitation in Delhi in 2020-21 against three controversial agriculture laws of the central government. These laws were later repealed.
