Rakesh Tikait, national spokesperson and farmer leader of the Indian Farmers Union, has said that now the farmers’ new mandi will be a parliament in Delhi. He called that when the Modi government is saying that we are buying on the MSP, then the farmers should take their crops to Parliament, because the procurement is not being done in the local mandis and hence the farmers market will be Parliament.

Also said that Ram does not live in the temple, Ram lives in the mind. He said that the farmers have to reach Delhi in a group of ten people from each village, when the second team comes there, then the first team has to come back from that village and only then the farmers will be able to win the fight. He said that if this movement fails, then no movement will be able to stand in the coming 100 years, so everyone should stand united and support.
