The farmers left the roads and broke the barricades set up by the police and entered the restricted area. We had asked the farmer leaders to take a tractor parade on kundalini, manesar and palwal. However, the farmers were determined to hold tractor parades in Delhi." "When the farmer leaders were allowed, they were told in writing that they should not be involved in more than 5000 tractor parades and should not have any weapons. However, the farmers broke the barricades and committed violence in violation of police instructions.
"By late night on January 25, it was clear that farmers were not prepared to follow the decision stipulated by the farmers' leaders regarding the tractor parade. The next day, he became aggressive and gave inflammatory speeches from the stage. This made their motive clear." The police have videos of the farmers threatening the leaders of the state. No one will be left. Any farmer leader found guilty of this will be legally prosecuted. Our agreement was with the farmers' leaders. They threatened us. Therefore, action will be taken against them.
