Earlier in the evening, Rakesh Tikait had broken into tears claiming that the protests will go on, and kept insisting that the laws must be repealed. He also threatened to commit suicide and also said that there was a conspiracy underway to murder farmers. Rakesh had received a legal notice from Delhi Police earlier to provide a valid reason to prevent his arrest.

Rakesh Tikait had earlier brazened it out, saying that he will not surrender and will even call more people to join the protest if needed. Tikait had even cried on national television to garner sympathy and slapped a fellow protestor even as he insisted that the laws be repealed.
