Mumbai: Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Samiti (KMSC) leader Satnam Singh Pannu claimed on Friday that the central government was sending people associated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to clash.
“The Modi government is using ill-mannered tactics to hand over our movement. They are sending the RSS people here to incite the struggle. They did it two times yesterday. We will make sacrifices but not go back until and unless the laws are repealed,” Pannu told ANI at the Singhu border.
He further said that more farmers are going to join him in the evening. The farmer leader also clarified that the protesters did not go to the Red Fort, but marched on the fixed route, taking out a tractor rally on Republic Day.
He said, “Our people did not go to the Red Fort. We held our rally on the ring road itself. The government sent its people there and are filing cases against us. They should withdraw these cases.”
Pannu claimed that the farmers were not involved in the vandalism in Delhi on 26 January. Instead, a conspiracy was hatched against him. The farmers are opposing the anti-agricultural legislation on the borders of Delhi, including Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur.
Heavy security forces are deployed at the borders to keep a check on the law and order situation.
Farmers have been protesting on the different borders of the national capital since November 26 last year against the three newly enacted farm laws — Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and farm Services Act 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
