Cautious of their struggle being hijacked post the January 26 violence in Delhi, farmers from Punjab feel that hardliners should not try to push their ideology through the fight against Centre’s controversial farm laws. They said that such elements have only ended up strengthening the government’s hands and bringing a bad name to a legitimate fight.

Dasuya (Hoshiarpur) farmer Lakhbir Singh, who is a regular visitor to the Singhu Border protest site, said that separatist or Khalistani elements should stay away from the movement.

“If they are really well-wishers of the protesting farmers they should stop giving statements as per their own ideologies. The government is trying to find one or other loophole since day one in our movement and such wrong statements by these separatists would be linked with our pious farm movement by the government,” he said.

Rajnath Singh had on Thursday announced in the Parliament that India and China have reached an agreement on disengagement in the North and South bank of Pangong lake in eastern Ladakh that mandates both sides to cease forward deployment of troops in a "phased, coordinated and verifiable" manner, signalling a breakthrough after a nine-month border standoff.

Day after Union Defense Minister Rajnath Singh announced in Parliament that India and China have reached an agreement on disengagement in the North and South bank of Pangong lake in eastern Ladakh, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi hit out at the government questioning why Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given up the country’s territory to China.

Pointing out that the troops are now going to be stationed at Finger 3, moving back from Finger 4, which is also Indian territory, he asked, “Why has Mr Modi given up our territory to the Chinese”.

Addressing a press conference on the matter, Gandhi further stated that the “PM is a coward who cannot stand up to the Chinese”. “He is betraying the sacrifice of our Army. Nobody in India should be allowed to do it,” he said.
