‘Tikait’s decision to not have 'Chakka Jam' in UP, U'khand was hasty’: Farmer leader

Senior farmer leader Darshan Pal said the decision by BKU leader Rakesh Tikait to not hold 'chakka jam' in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand was taken in ‘a hasty manner’ and it would have been better had he first discussed his plan with the Samkyukta Kisan Morcha. On Feb 5, Tikait told reporters that there would be no road blockade in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand on Saturday. "It would have been better if Rakesh Tikait had talked and discussed about his proposal of not having chakka jam in UP and Uttarakhand with us before telling it to the media. He, of course, did discuss it with the SKM later and it was a joint thing," Pal told reporters at a press conference at the Singhu border. The three-hour long nationwide 'chakka jam' by protesting farmers was held on Saturday amid tight security. The Delhi Police had also used drone cameras to keep a tight vigil at protest sites.
