Rakesh Tikait announces nationwide march to "set Gujarat free"

Amid the ongoing farmers' protest, Bhartiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait on February 12 announced a nationwide march to Gujarat to "set it free", saying the state is "controlled" by Centre. "We will march nation-wide, go to Gujarat and set it free. It's controlled by Centre. India is free but people of Gujarat are imprisoned. If they want to join the movement, they are jailed. We are deciding on the date," Tikait told media in Bahadurgarh where he attended a Kisan Mahapanchayat.
