New Delhi: Ahead of the upcoming West Bengal Assembly polls, Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait on Saturday (March 13) urged people not to vote for the BJP and accused the party of looting the entire country.
Tikait made this statement at a mahapanchayat (a public meeting) in Kolkata. The BKU leader’s agenda for Bengal visit includes discussing the issue of MSP and the three controversial farm laws with the farmers of the state.
Meanwhile, Tikait is scheduled to visit the hotly contested seat of Nandigram. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari will contest against each other in Nandigram.
Earlier, Tikait had told the reporters in Delhi that he will be going to Kolkata and meet the government there only. “The government has gone to Kolkata. They will return in one and a half month. We are also going there. We will meet the government there only.”
