In the video, he said, “Repeal this bill, this is a fire. This is a fire which will lead to many losses. (iss bill ko dabaa do, yeh aag hai, yeh bahut nuksaan ki aag hai). If the laws are repealed then the government does not stand to lose anything. The bills have put on hold for one-and-half years. Accept your fault, and hold talks.”

इब के इन्होंने गलत जगह हाथ गेर दिया। माँगे माने बिना हम मानने वाले नहीं। लाठी-गोली कुछ भी चला लो, हम सीने पै गोली खाएंगे, पीठ दिखा के जाने वाले नहीं। इब यो किसान परिवार एकजुट हो लिया।आज बागपत महापंचायत का नज़ारा…

Tikait also said, “In this government, Rajnath (Singh) jee is being humiliated (Rajnath jee ki tauheen ho rahi hai iss sarkaar mein). There is nothing in the control of our MPs, they are feeling afraid, and their sympathy is with the farmers.”
