Naresh also received the BKU presidents post according to this rule of Baliyan Khap.Although Naresh was elected as the president of Bharatiya Kisan Union after his fathers death, it is said that all the major decisions of the farmers organisation are taken by his younger brother Rakesh Tikait, who has been associated with the organisation as its national spokesperson since 1997.The heredity title Tikait, carried Naresh and his family members, has been inherited by them from Harshavardhana, a seventh-century Jaat ruler of Thanesar. The title was first given to the Chaudhary (head) of Baliyan Khap, and the tradition has continued since then.Ever since Naresh took over the command as the president of BKU in 2011, he has been actively fighting for the rights of farmers and has been involved in many pro-farmers movements that have taken place in Uttar Pradesh and its adjacent states.Naresh was a part of the farmers Kranti Yatra that was held in 2018 under the banner of Bhartiya Kisan Union. The movement demanded unconditional loan waiver for farmers, approval of dues by sugar mill owners, higher prices for crops, free electricity for farms, a cut in diesel prices, and implementation of the Swaminathan Committee report. As the procession of thousands of farmers reached the Delhi border, it clashed with the Delhi Police who were trying to stop them from entering the national capital. Kisan Kranti Yatra at Delhi border After hours-long faceoff between police and farmers, ministers from the union government held negotiation talks with Tikait and other farmers leaders, asking them to withdraw the Yatra. BKU agreed to the assurance of the union government to form a committee that would look into the demands of farmers, and therefore, the Yatra came to an end.In August 2019, Naresh Tikait, who belongs to Raghuvanshi gotra, claimed that the people of his gotra are heirs of Lord Rama.

The statement was contrary to his younger brothers stance, who was not willing to end the agitation until the government fulfils the demands set by Sanyukt Kisan Morcha. However, Naresh changed his stance the same day in the evening after a video of Rakesh Tikait sobbing while talking to media correspondents at Ghazipur protest site went viral. Subsequently, Naresh announced that the farmers protests will go on until farmers demands are met.
