Rakesh Tikait, Bhartiya Kisan Union leader said Indian farmers will oppose the so-called ‘milk agreement’ with Australia.

Tikait tweeted, “Australia is on the threshold of signing an agreement with India next month to supply milk at 20-22 rupees (0.35 AUD) per litre. India’s decision to import milk poses an existential threat to India’s cattle owners. Farmers will oppose it.”
