Rakesh Tikait’s appeal to Biden
Tagging President Biden’s Twitter account, Rakesh Tikait tweeted, “We Indian farmers are protesting against three agriculture laws brought by PM Modi’s government. In the last 11 months of protests, 700 farmers have died. These black laws have to be abolished to save us. Please also pay attention to our concerns during the meeting with PM Modi.
PM Modi is on a three-day visit to America. He met US Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday. Today he is going to have a meeting with President Joe Biden.
In fact, he may be surrounded by the appeal of the head of another country to intervene in this matter. Regarding Rakesh Tikait’s tweet, United Kisan Morcha member Kavita Kuruganti said that getting international support is necessary for this movement to be strong at every level. I personally believe that there is nothing wrong with this.

Last 11 months, farmers have been demonstrating on the borders of the capital Delhi. Their demand is that they should be guaranteed MSP and all three agricultural laws should be repealed.
Many rounds of talks have been held with the government of farmer leaders regarding this, but no solution has been found. The central government has made it clear that they will not repeal the laws, while the farmers say that the government will have to bow down to their demands.
