Some people want to turn farmers' agitation violent on behest of govt: Kisan Sangharsh Samiti

While addressing a joint press conference at Tikri Border on January 17, the convener of Kisan Sangharsh Samiti in Haryana, Mandip Nathwan spoke on farmers protest.

Nathwan said, "On behest of government, some people want to turn this agitation violent.

This agitation is against policies of government, and not against Delhi." "We should implement strategy finalised by Sanyukt Kisan Morcha and continue it peacefully," he added.

"It is being said that farmers would unfurl tricolour at Red Fort and tractors and tanks would roll together (on January 26).

No such programme has been finalised by the Morcha.

Such statements are not in interests of farmers," Nathwan further stated

Many people told me that they (demonstrators) were deliberately shown the wrong path as they did not know Delhi routes. Those who hoisted flag were their (BJP) workers. Our farmers can give lives but can’t be anti-nationals,” said Kejriwal. He added, “Today, BJP's central government has filed sedition cases against farmers. Even the British didn’t charge farmers with sedition.” Watch the full video for more.
