Bharatiya Kisan Union (Bhanu) national president Bhanu Pratap Singh on Monday alleged that all those organisations that were protesting at the Singhu, Ghazipur and Tikri borders of the national capital on January 26 against the three new farm laws were "Congress-bought and Congress-sent."
"On January 26, we came to know that all these organisations that were agitating on the Singhu, Ghazipur and Tikari borders were all Congress-bought and Congress-sent organisations. Congress was funding them," the farmer leader told news agency ANI.
Protesters broke barricades to enter New Delhi and clashed with police in several parts of the national capital during the January 26 tractor rally protest organised by the farmers.
The protestors had also entered the iconic Red Fort and unfurled their flags from its ramparts.
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.
