Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait today said he would hold a meeting with farmers on March 13 in Kolkata, West Bengal.

"We are going to Kolkata on March 13. We will speak with farmers there about their concerns and ask if their produce are being bought at MSP or not," Mr Tikait said while visiting Bala Sahib Dialysis Hospital in Delhi.

"The government has gone to Kolkata. They will return in one and a half month. We are also going there. We will meet the government there only," he added.

When asked about the stalemate between farmers and the Centre even after more than 100 days, Mr Tkait said that the government, sooner or later, will have to pay heed to farmers' issues.

Speaking about the hospital, he said it is a free-of-cost hospital for kidney dialysis for the poor and is fully funded by the Sikh community. Farmers have been protesting on the different borders of the national capital since November 26 against the three newly enacted farm laws - Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and farm Services Act 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
