Accusing the Center of not fulfilling the promises made to farmers, Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait said Monday will be a "betrayal day" across the country on agricultural issues. The BKU national spokesperson claimed on Sunday that the over a year-long protest at Delhi's borders was called off on the basis of a letter of promises made by the government on December 9, but the promises remained unfulfilled. .

Betrayal Day will be celebrated on 31 January

In a tweet, Tikait said, 'Treason Day' will be observed nationwide on 31 January against the government's denial of promises to farmers. The government has not fulfilled any of the promises on the basis of the December 9 letter of the government on which the agitation was suspended.

Farmers protested against agricultural laws

In November 2020, farmers under the banner of Samyukta Kisan Morcha started protesting at the borders of Delhi, demanding the withdrawal of three controversial agricultural laws brought by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government. Farmers protested at Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur borders for more than a year on demands, including legal guarantee for Minimum Support Price (MSP) of crops, among other demands. After Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the withdrawal of controversial agricultural laws in November 2021, protesters vacated Delhi's borders in December.
