Mumbai: Yogendra Yadav, the leader of the farm union and founder of Swaraj India, appealed to all the protesters on Tuesday not to do anything that could tarnish the movement.
Yogendra Yadav said, “I appeal to all the farmers to ignore the rumours on behalf of the Rumor Kisan Morcha, also to return to their designated routes. Please don’t do anything that tarnishes the farmers’ movement.”
The Delhi Police on Saturday allowed thousands of agitating farmers to enter the national capital, leading to a tractor rally.
“Farmers will take out ‘Kisan Republic Parade’ on 26 January. Barricades will be opened and we will enter Delhi. We (farmers and Delhi Police) have reached an agreement on the route, the final details are to be worked on tonight.” Yadav, the founder of Swaraj India, first told ANI.
“We will take out a historic and peaceful parade and it will not have any effect on the Republic Day parade or security system,” Yadav said.
By opening the border points which have been closed for two months, the Delhi Police will allow the farmers to enter Delhi from the five entry points. “We have been allowed to cover a distance of 100 km on each route,” farmer leader Darshan Pal told Hindustan Times.
