Farmers listen to a speaker during a protest against the central government's recent agricultural reforms, at the Delhi-Haryana state border in Singhu on January 27, 2021.

New Delhi: Samyukt Kisan Morcha has blamed Mazdoor Kisan Sangharsh Committee (KMSC) and Deep Sidhu for violence that ensued the tractors parade on the Republic Day.

The farmer leaders said that they will not tolerate acts by Sidhu and KMSC. The leaders said that KMSC is an organisation loyal to the government and they were provided special enclosures to sit on dharna during the ongoing farmers' protest. They also pointed out that the KMSC was initially not the part of the protest and joined only after 13 days.

Deep Sidhu was campaigning to strengthen the BJP and as election agent of the party's Gurdaspur candidate Sunny Deol, even posed with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

It is alleged that actor-turned-activist Deep Sidhu was among the group of farmers who entered the Red Fort and unfurled the pennant there, while violent clashes erupted in several areas of the national capital.

Hundreds of farmers riding their tractors, motorcycles and cars entered the premises of Red Fort on Tuesday afternoon with the national flag, a pennant and farmer union flags in their hands.

As many as 22 FIRs have been filed by the Delhi Police so far in connection with the violence witnessed during the farmers' tractor rally on Republic Day, officials said on Wednesday.

According to TribuneIndia.com, Deep Sindhu, who was being continuously disapproved by farmer unions, reappeared at the main stage at Singh one day ahead of the tractor parade. He announced they would hold the march inside Delhi.

On Tuesday, large number of henchmen, positioned at a road turning towards central Delhi, ushered the thousands of tractors towards the Red Fort instead of the agreed direction. Efforts of the volunteers of farmer unions to prevent deviation went vain as number of volunteers belonging to the Deep Sidhu and Left leaning Lakha Sidhana Group outnumbered them.

Meanwhile, the farmers have cancelled a planned march to Parliament on Budget Day. Instead, they will hold Jan Sabhas across India on 73rd anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi's assassination. On the day, the protesters and the farmers across the country will observe one day hunger strike (Anshan).
