Samyukt Kisan Morcha leader Rakesh Kumar Tikait has alleged the Centre was trying to scuttle the farmers’ agitation by carrying out “operation clean”.

Addressing a farmers’ rally at Karandi village in Mansa, Tikait said: “The Centre wants to derail the farmers’ struggle by using the pandemic as an excuse. We will not relent till the laws are withdrawn.”

“While farmers in Haryana are not facing any problem at procurement centres, in Punjab, the Centre is harassing them with an aim to crush the peasant movement,” he said.
