Sunil Jakhar, state president of BJP, has blamed Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh for jeopardising the efforts of both farmer leaders and Union Ministers at arriving at a solution.

His remarks come a day after farmers rejected the Centre’s proposal to buy pulses, maize and cotton crops through government agencies at Minimum Support Price (MSP) for five years and announced to continue with their ‘Delhi Chalo’ agitation.

Mann had mediated a meeting between three Union Ministers and farmer leaders where the proposal was made.

In a tweet, Jakhar stated that CM Mann had everything to gain from the failure of these talks. Not only would he now be able to show the Centre in a bad light but also redirect those farmers also to Delhi who had initially wanted to march to Chandigarh. And sure enough, he has succeeded in this mission by jeopardising the efforts of both the farmers and the central ministerial team to arrive at a solution.

Mann had maintained that he participated in the meeting as an "advocate" of the farmers.
