“When farmers’ organizations declared a Kisan Parade program on January 26, antisocial elements such as Deep Sidhu and others, together with said farmers’ organization, tried to torpedo farmers’ agitation.
“Under this conspiracy, said Kisan organization and others announced that they would march along the ring road and unfurl a flag at the Red Fort. As a corollary to the conspiracy, the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee started marching on the ring road, two hours before the programmed march of the organizations in struggle. It was a deeply rooted conspiracy to overthrow the peaceful and strong struggle of the peasants, “he said.

“The peasant organizations resolved to continue this agitation and harshly condemned the government and its administration, said peasant organization and antisocial elements, which tried to damage the peaceful peasant struggle.
