BKU leader Rakesh Tikait has said that the farmer protests would go on indefinitely if the government didn't take back the three contentious farm laws.

"If the government does not accept our demands, we will continue to sit on protest till even 2024," Tikait told IANS.

He further stated "As long as the three farm laws are not taken back, a law on MSP is not made and the Swaminathan Committee report not implemented, we would continue our struggle."
