"When the farmer organizations declared a programme of Kisan Parade on 26 January, anti-social elements like Deep Sidhu and others, along with the said farmer organization attempted to torpedo the farmers’ agitation," the leaders said in their statement.

Marching on Ring Road and unfurling the flag at Red Fort were part of the conspiracy to derail the peaceful struggle that the farmers had been carrying out so far.

The constituents of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha will continue the agitation, the statement read, while also condemning the government and the anti-social elements. "Yesterday's events exposed and isolated the anti-farmer forces clearly," it said.
