Even after the inconclusive eleven rounds of talks, farmers are dishearted with the government’s behavior towards them.

A farmer talking to Associates Times, Satpal Singh, said, “The government’s behavior disheartens us. Not even a single time, our PM Modi came here to meet us; however, his house is not far from our protesting sites.”

On 26th January, protesting farmers conducted a tractor rally inside the national capital to show their presence to the government.

Although some radical elements took advantage of that and waved farm union and religious flags from the Red Fort’s ramparts, notably, Prime Minister annually hoist the national flag at the Red Fort to mark the country’s independence. 

After this incident, almost all farmers’ union leaders separated themselves from this and proclaimed that it was pre-planned by the ruling party to defame their peaceful protest. 

Though, Delhi Police has registered a sedition case under section 124A (sedition) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) in connection with the violence at Red Fort during a tractor rally by farmers on Republic Day.
