New Delhi: Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait has warned the Central government that the farmers protesting against the three farm laws will turn government offices into “grain markets”. He further added that there would be an escalation of protest at the Delhi border if the government does not revoke these laws by November 26.

“The Central government has time till November 26, after that from November 27, farmers will reach the border at the protest sites around Delhi by tractors from villages and strengthen the protest site with solid fortifications”, tweeted the BKU leader in Hindi.

The warning came two days after the Delhi Police removed all the barricades from Tikri and Ghazipur borders for smooth movement of traffic. Rakesh Tikait also said that if administrations pull farmers’ tents down then they will set up their tents in Police stations and District Magistrate’s offices.

Thousands of farmers have been protesting against the three farm laws under the aegis of Samyukta Kisan Morcha at three border points; Tikri, Singhu, and Ghazipur since November 26, last year. However, the Centre has been saying these legislations are pro-farmer. There have been several rounds of talks between the Centre and farmers.
