“Farmers have been protesting for the last two months at the borders of the national capital. Then why can’t the Centre agree to their demands? The Centre should adopt our ‘Chhattisgarh model’. No farmer in our state is protesting as they are happy with our pro-farmer schemes,” he added

Later, the Chief Minister tweeted, “I am the son of a farmer. I will fight for the farmers. Those who are trying to break the spirit of the farmers must know that Chhattisgarh has a voice. Jai Kisan!” (roughly translated from Hindi).

On 26 January, there were reports of farmers entering Delhi and resorting to vandalism from many parts of the city.

The entry and exit gates of several metro stations were also closed. Police Commissioner (CP) SN Srivastava has arrested nineteen people so far on Wednesday and more than 25 criminal cases have been registered by the Delhi Police in connection with the violence. Srivastava said that 394 police personnel were injured in the violence and many of them were still injured in hospitals.
