Farmers’ leader Rakesh Tikait targeted in Bengaluru

Bengaluru, May 31 (KMS): Ink was thrown at Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait during an event in Bengaluru in the Indian state of Karnataka.

Tikait said that no security was provided to him by the Bharatiya Janata Party in the state.

“This [ink attack] has been done in collusion with the government,” he told the media.

The incident happened when Tikait was addressing a press conference on a sting operation in which a Karnataka farmers’ leader was allegedly caught asking for money.

About a dozen people barged into a press meet and sprayed ink at Tikait.

Tikait was one of the faces of the farmers’ movement against the now repealed agricultural laws.
