Farmers’ protest: ‘We are ready for talks but without conditions’, says Rakesh Tikait

Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait on July 08 said that protesting farmers are ready to talk with the government on the farm laws but “without conditions”. Tikait was responding to Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar’s remarks earlier today, where he said that the government is ready to hold talks with the protesting farmers to discuss other options. “They are imposing conditions that we should go to them for talks. They say that they can amend the laws but will not scrap them. Farmers have not been protesting for eight months so that they can follow the government’s orders. If the government wants to talk, they can talk, but no conditions should be imposed,” Tikait told ANI.
