Reportedly, Bharatiya Kisan Union Rakesh Tikait said that it's not that the crowd was decreasing, the farmers would keep coming as they have to manage their fields and also the movement.

"They will not go home till the farm laws 2020 get repealed. Farmers are not on the streets as they are sitting in their tents. We have asked farmers to be on standby and when the need arises we will call them."
