Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Saturday said that farmers from his state did not participate in the 'Dilli Chalo' protest march against the Centre's farm laws, adding the ongoing demonstrations is being driven by certain political parties and unions.
Khattar held his Punjab counterpart Amarinder Singh responsible for the thousands of farmers marching to Delhi.
"The movement was started by farmers of Punjab.
However, there is some connection with certain political parties and some unions.
Farmers of Haryana did not take part in these protests (Dilli Chalo) and I would congratulate them for that.
I would like to praise the Haryana police for performing their duty with utmost composure for the past two days," Khattar said.
Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday slammed the Centre over the ongoing farmers' protest.
"Treating farmers with such dereliction has never been done by any party except BJP.
These are the same people who had told farmers that they would not only waive loans but would bring in policies which would double farmers' income," Yadav said.
