2 Farmers’ Unions withdraw from protests after Republic Day Violence

January 27, 2021: Although somewhat expected, but still coming as a shock, the Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Sangathan lead by Sardar VM Singh has taken away support from the ongoing protests against the three controversial agricultural laws.

This development has come a day after violence broke out in the national capital as farmers clashed with the Delhi Police during their Republic Day Tractor Parade on Tuesday.


Another farmers’ union called the Bhartiya Kisan Union (Bhanu) which was a part of the ongoing protest has also withdrawn its presence in the movement from the Chilla Border.

Farmer Leader Sardar VM Singh declared the withdrawal in a statement saying, “I can’t carry forward protest with someone whose direction is different. I wish them best but VM Singh & Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Sangathan are withdrawing from the protest. The protest will continue until we get MSP guarantee but the protest will not go on in this form with me. We have not come to get people martyred or beaten up.”
