Tikait said – everything happened at the behest of the government
The statement of Rakesh Tikait on forming a separate organization has also come to the fore. Tikait blamed the government for the breakdown. He said, behind all this is the government and it has got everything done. The way people had surrendered on 26, 27 and 28 January 2021, in the same way today on 15 May also a few people have surrendered before the government.
‘Those who do not have faith are free to go’
Rakesh Tikait said that many people have gone out of our organization in the past as well. In Uttar Pradesh itself, 8 to 10 organizations have been formed by breaking from the Bharatiya Kisan Union. He said, those who do not have faith are free to go.
‘Too much pressure from the government’
Tikait said, I had gone to Lucknow yesterday to talk to him, but he told me that he is not going anywhere but there must have been some great compulsion, only then these people have left and the pressure from the government is too much. People live with slight resentment, but all these things are engaged in one organization, now if someone wants to go from the organization which is in the districts, then they should leave.
What did the new president Rajesh Chauhan say?
The new president of the organization said that our leader Mahatma Tikait had said that we are apolitical. Our leaders will not participate in any political activity, but when the 2022 elections came after 13 months of agitation, our leader Rakesh Tikait ji campaigned around a particular party, and targeted a particular party. Which was against our principles.
Chouhan said, we have also called Tikait and said that this decision is wrong, we are apolitical people. All these things are happening contrary to the principles of Mahatma Tikait, it should be withdrawn. But they did not listen to us.
‘Rakesh Tikait, Naresh Tikait welcome in new organization’
The new president said, there were 33-year-old workers like Rajesh Singh Chauhan in that organization, but the names of family members were put in the executive committee, we are not even common workers in the executive. We haven’t separated anyone. We have taken this decision in the interest of farmers and to save the principles of Mahatma Tikait to save the organization. If Rakesh Tikait and Naresh Tikait want to come with us they are welcome, but they should come with the principles of Mahatma Tikait.
‘It is okay to be separated from the house where there is no respect’
He said that our leaders are doing the work of mortgaging the organization by becoming the face of the opposition, of which I was opposed, will I be against? Whatever our displeasure was due to elections. We should not have participated in this election in any way.
Chouhan said, we talked many times on the principle of not participating in the elections, but if the matter was not accepted, then it is okay to separate from the house where there is no respect. He said, many big officials are with us. Big and strong faction is with us.
