GHAZIPUR: Amid the ongoing protest against the new farm laws, Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait on Thursday said the agitation will continue for long.

"We will continue our protest until the government agrees to talk to the committee. We are here for long," said Tikait.

"There must be a minimum and maximum rate for crops in the country," he added.
