'Tanks, Tractors, Twitter': Farmer Union Leader Warns Narendra Modi Gov't Protests May Continue

Indian farmers have been protesting against three agricultural laws, brought in in September 2020, since November last year. Talks between farming leaders and the government have reached no compromise so far.

Rakesh Tikait, the head of the farmers' Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) has said that after seven months' protests, his organisation is as determined as ever to get the agricultural laws revoked.

Revealing a "Triple T - Tanks, Tractors and Twitter" formula, Tikait reminded the government on Tuesday that the farming community in India not only produces food, but also produces soldiers and informed youngsters who guard the nation and know efficient ways to raise voices for their causes on social media platforms. Therefore, the stance of farmers remains strong and demand to have the new laws revoked remains firm, Tikait said.

“The farmer who works in the field and drives a tractor, is the same farmer who goes to the borders to drive the tank. We have a lot of soldiers, who run tractors in the fields, and tanks on the borders. The same farmer also has Twitter on his phone. This is the 'Triple T' formula. This will benefit not only the farmers movement but also the country,” Farmers' Leader, Rakesh Tikait, told the media.
