Delhi can’t believe without a tractor
Meanwhile, National Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) spokesman Rakesh Tikait said, ‘You can either send officials to our detention offices in Tihar Prison or have them meet with the Governor. We will keep you informed of Delhi’s treatment. Delhi does not believe without a tractor. There will be a great change in deciding where this war will take place, what place and time it will be. He added, ‘Parliament is a farmers’ hospital. We will be treated there. We now know that better treatment for farmers is done in Parliament than in AIIMS. We will find our treatment there. Whenever we go to Delhi, we go to Parliament.
Either you send the officers of our office who are imprisoned in the Tihar Prison or make them meet the Emperor. We will keep you informed of Delhi’s treatment. Delhi does not believe without a tractor. There will be a big change in deciding where the war will take place, what the place and time will be: Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait
