For the peace of the souls of the farmers killed during the violence, a program of last Ardas (tribute meeting) was organized on Tuesday. The event was kept at a short distance from the incident site. Farmer leader and Bharatiya Kisan Union spokesperson Rakesh Tikait, who reached the program, said that Union Minister Ajay Mishra should resign and if not, there will be a big agitation regarding this. Talking to the media, Rakesh Tikait said that the arrest of the minister’s son is red carpet and the remand is about bouquets. No police officer has the guts to interrogate him. Rakesh Tikait said that Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra should resign and there should be arrest. Otherwise, the movement will be more widespread. After the violence, there was a mediation between the government and the farmers and questions were raised on the role you played in this. On this, Rakesh Tikait said that from day one we have demanded that the minister should resign and also arrest. Leaders of political parties are being stopped and you are coming unhindered. In response to this, Rakesh Tikait said that this question should be asked to the opposition. Rakesh Tikait said that if there is no resignation and arrest of the Union Minister, he will announce the agitation. The ashes will be taken to every district of the country. People will stream him on 24th October and come to Lucknow on 26th October. Rakesh Tikait said that its fight will be fought across the country.
