Rakesh Tikait, national spokesperson for the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), stated that the farmers’ battle will be recorded in gold letters. Tikait further stressed that he has no plans to run for office and urged against exploiting his images on political billboards. He stated, “I am not affiliated with any political party.” Tikait came home late Wednesday night after 383 days of dharna while speaking to farmers in Sisauli village.
According to Rakesh Tikait, “Our fight will be immortalised in gold letters. Until my last breath, I will continue to fight for farmers’ rights.” Tikait arrived at Sisauli in a massive procession of his supporters, who showered the rally with flowers along the way. On the Meerut-Muzaffarnagar route, ‘laddus’ were distributed at every intersection, and langars were held every 25 kilometres from the Ghazipur border to Muzaffarnagar.
Tikait had not returned home since the farmers’ movement began
Sunita Devi, Tikait’s wife, lit hundreds of diyas to welcome him to their Jat Colony home. She stated to the press, “After 383 days, my husband is returning home today. The amount of lamps I’ll need to light in his honour will not be reduced. My Ram is returning home today, as Lord Ram returns to Ayodhya.” Tikait hadn’t returned home since the farmers’ uprising began.
