Lucknow: After 'abba jaan', it is now 'chacha jaan' in Uttar Pardesh and this time farmer leader Rakesh Tikait has a name for AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi.

'Chacha jaan' is the new name given to Owaisi by Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Rakesh Tikait, who has lashed out at the AIMIM leader over his decision to contest Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh.

"BJP's chacha jaan, Asaduddin Owaisi has entered Uttar Pradesh. If he (Owaisi) will abuse them (BJP), they will not file any case against him because they are a team," he said while talking to reporters in Baghpat.

Referring to AIMIM offering a ticket to mafia-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed, Tikait said, "What about Pragya Thakur (BJP MP from Bhopal) and her credentials?"

Tikait, who is spearheading the farmers' agitation against the three contentious farm laws, has been touring various districts of Uttar Pradesh to muster support for the ongoing agitation.
