The Samyukta Kisan Morcha thanked farmers for their participation in the Farmers Republic Day Parade and condemned the violence that took place between cops and farmers in the national capital. “We thank farmers for the unprecedented participation in today’s Farmers Republic Day Parade. We also condemn and regret the undesirable and unacceptable events that have taken place today and dissociate ourselves from those indulging in such acts.” “Despite all our efforts, some organisations and individuals violated route & indulged in condemnable acts. Anti-social elements had infiltrated the otherwise peaceful movement. We’ve always held that peace is our biggest strength or any violation would hurt the movement,”they added.
