Farmers Tractor Rally Today Live Coverage: As the farmers protest against the three contentious farm laws nearing its eight-month mark, farmers are expected to take out a ‘Kisan Tractor Yatra’ from Shamli in Uttar Pradesh to Delhi’s Singhu border. According to Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU), the tractor march will be headed by Gaurav Tikait, son of Rakesh Tikait. A large number of farmers have been camping at Delhi’s Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur border demanding the repeal of three new farms laws which have been put on hold by the Supreme Court. They have also been demanding a legal guaranteee for the MSP. Yesterday, Agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar said that the government is ready for talks and amend the laws but won’t repeal. He asked farmer unions to come out with their proposals except repealing of the laws.

Reacting to agriculture minister’s remark, BKU spokesperson Rakesh Tikait said that if the government want to talk, they will have to initiate the meetings without any precondition. Tikait also alleged that the Uttar Pradesh police is stopping people of the state from joining the farmers’ protest against three central farm laws at Delhi’s borders. He alleged that several people from Purvanchal area in eastern part of the state were either not getting public transport to reach Delhi or were being stopped by the local police. Tikait also announced at the press conference that the BKU would be intensifying its protest at district level in Uttar Pradesh from August 1 to highlight the problems being faced by the farming community.
