A joint statement by the veterans stated that they are supporting the farmers "unconditionally and unequivocally" for their rightful demands being conveyed in a democratic and peaceful manner.

The ex-military leaders, while expressed empathy with the farmers, also condemned the use of force on them with tear-gas and water cannons.

The statement cautioned that neglecting the importance of the Jawan-Kisan link "can seriously affect our country's security."
