Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait was questioned about Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and asked how did he work in UP?
Not much time is left for the assembly elections to be held in Uttar Pradesh. All the parties are trying hard to get the throne. Meanwhile, farmer leader Rakesh Tikait is also seen very active. However, he has already made it clear that he will neither contest elections with anyone nor campaign for any party. Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait also gave an interview to Aaj Tak regarding the ongoing political agitations in UP, where he was asked about Chief Minister Yogi and his works.
Questioning Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait, news anchor Chitra Tripathi said, “How has Yogi ji done for UP in the last five years?” Responding to him, the farmer leader said, “We asked where Yogi ji worked. He has done three and a half jobs. On sugarcane, he was at number three. Mayawati was at number one and Akhilesh Yadav at number two, who increased the price by Rs 65.
Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait further said in his statement, “Yogi ji increased only Rs 25. Whatever works, it will be seen. Sugarcane is not paid, electricity rates are the most expensive in the entire country in Uttar Pradesh. Questioning his point, the news anchor said, “Ghat to diya daam ko?”
Rakesh Tikait himself did not back down from answering the news anchor. He said, “What happened? It said that it will give a discount. But that exemption is for one month, till the election or for two and a half months. He would have written in it that we have cut the bill by fifty percent. The bill got reduced by so much Rs. They do a lot of deception.” On the matter of Rakesh Tikait, the news anchor asked a question related to Akhilesh Yadav.
Chitra Tripathi asked the BKU leader, “And the one Akhilesh Yadav has promised that he will give 300 units of electricity free of cost?” Responding to this, farmer leader Rakesh Tikait said, “When his government comes, we will see. If they don’t, there will be agitation against them too.” When asked about the election by the news anchor, he said, “We are not contesting elections.”
