Rakesh Tikait said in an interview to Aaj Tak that Lord Ram is ours and we are his descendants. Along with this, the farmer leader also accused the government.
Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait has been protesting against the agricultural laws of the central government for the past several months. These days he is also in a lot of discussion about his statements. Recently, Rakesh Tikait gave an interview to ‘Aaj Tak’, in which he accused the government of misleading the youth. Along with this, Rakesh Tikait also talked about Lord Ram in the interview. Rakesh Tikait said that we are descendants of Lord Ram. He was our Ram, but he has changed to ‘Jai Shri Ram’.
Rakesh Tikait said in his interview, “His fares were increased in the name of special train. He did not run the train, but by writing a special in front of him, he increased the fare three times in his name. Every year two crore people are becoming unemployed in the country and this is the fight of 14 crore youth. Let us not fight that battle and remain entangled in temples, mosques and gurudwaras.
Taking a jibe at the government, Rakesh Tikait further said, “We had already said that this country is a sage and agriculture based country. If you molest the agricultural system, there will be a stir, and if you molest the sage system, there will be a stir. If you molest anyone, there will be chaos in the country. We are fighting for agriculture and we are molesting Rishi.”
Talking about Lord Ram, Rakesh Tikait said, “We are descendants of Ramchandra ji. He was also Raghuvanshi, we are also Raghuvanshi. Our ancestors were also born in Ayodhya itself, so where did their Ramchandra ji come from? We had Ram, theirs is Jai Shri Ram. We had Ram-Ram, but they changed that too. We are born of Ayodhya and we are Raghuvanshi.”
Rakesh Tikait did not stop here. He further said, “Raghu is the Rama of the sages, he will remain his.” In the interview, the farmer leader also discussed about the MSP. He said, “The government should give the guarantee card of MSP. When the Government of India is giving MSP, give us its card also. They are lying and misleading the country.”
