Ghaziabad: Farmers’ agitation continues on the borders of Delhi. Farmers have been continuously standing on the Delhi border since the month of November last year and are protesting for the removal of agricultural laws. Meanwhile, Rakesh Tikait has said that BJP is conspiring to incite caste-based riots.
Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) national spokesperson Rakesh Tikait on Wednesday accused the BJP of hatching a conspiracy to incite caste-based riots following a clash between Bharatiya Janata Party workers and protesters protesting against the agriculture law at the Ghazipur border.

According to a statement issued by BKU, Tikait said that BJP workers showed black flags to farmer leaders and used objectionable language. The statement said that the members of Valmiki Samaj have extended their support to the ongoing protests over agricultural laws.
Conspiracy of BJP and RSS
At the same time, according to an eyewitness, the clash took place when BJP workers were taking out a procession on a flyway, where the protesters, mainly BKU supporters, have been camping since November 2020. The farmers alleged that the episode was a conspiracy by the BJP and the RSS to suppress the seven-month-old protest.
At the same time, workers of the ruling party claimed that abusive and casteist words were used when they were taking out a welcome procession in honor of the newly appointed BJP general secretary Amit Valmiki, which led to the clash.
