Farmers, protesting against the Land Acquisition Bill for the last four days at Jantar Mantar here, on Saturday called off their agitation after seeking President Pranab Mukherjee's intervention to stall Centre's move.
Farmers organisations, including BKU, on Wednesday staged a massive protest, demanding that Centre must take assent of 100 per cent farmers before land acquisition and the same should be done only for public purposes.
Opposing the Land Acquisition bill brought by the BJP-led central government, the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) on Sunday said the only aim of the proposed law was to grab the farmers` land and help land grabbers.
Police on Friday registered cases against several RLD and BKU activists, who had protested violently against Centre's move to evict RLD chief Ajit Singh from his official residence in Delhi, at Murad Nagar.
Over two dozen sugarcane farmers associated with the Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) on Tuesday began an indefinite fast at Nasiruddin Mauji Bhawan, housing several government offices, here to press for their demand of earliest opening of sugar factories.
A Muslim leader of the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) was expelled from the outfit allegedly for anti-organisation activities, fuelling speculation of a rift within the union following the recent communal riots here.
A local court Thursday issued non-bailable warrants against BKU chief MS Tikait and its Secretary Harpal Singh
after they failed to appear in the court in connection with an 17-year-old case for disrupting railway traffic.
