On Tuesday, Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) spokesperson Rakesh Tikait cautioned that the uprising of farmers would not end unless the government repeals the three newly enacted farm laws and could continue until October. 

'Kanoon Wapsi Nahi toh Ghar Wapasi Nahi' is our motto. This upheaval will not end before October, it will not end any time soon, Tikait said while addressing the Ghazipur border rally. 

In response to the heavy deployment of security forces and fencing at the Delhi border, he said,' the government's plan to stop farmers is going to backfire as it will limit farm output movements to different locations and in turn harm everyday people. I encourage you all to be prepared until October/November to continue on this campaign. Let the administration do as much fencing as they like to do

Tikait reported that the authorities themselves had given way to the youth who hoisted the flag at Red Fort. ' Much of this was done to malign the Punjabi community's reputation and portray the farmers' image as anti-national,' he said. 

Protection on the boundaries of Ghazipur, Singhu and Tikri has been improved, as farmers have continued to make their way to the protest sites for the past two to three days. 

The Delhi Police blocked roads near Akshardham and prohibited vehicular movement on National Highway-24 between Delhi and Ghaziabad. 

Since November 26, farmers have been protesting against the three newly enacted farm laws on the various boundaries of the national capital: the Farmers' Produce Exchange and Commerce Act; the Essential Commodities Act 2020 and the Farmers' Empowerment and Protection Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act.
