Khattar wrote on Twitter:
I appeal to all the farming brothers to directly talk to the Centre for all their legitimate issues. The movement is not the way. The solution will come only through conversation. The central government is always ready for talks.
I urged the farmers to discontinue their protests as this is not the way to achieve any solution.
On the other side, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar ordered the police to use tear gas, water cannon amid freezing cold, as thousands of farmers are all set to enter the Capital.
Captain Singh was responsible for the thousands of angry farmers marching to Delhi and some throwing stones and overturning barricades in response to a heavy-handed police crackdown in Haryana.Punjab farmers are protesting. Haryana farmers have stayed away. I thank Haryana farmers and police for showing restraint. Khattar reiterated that the farmers’ agitation was sponsored by the Congress and the Punjab Government.
Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh:
Punjab is not stopping its farmers because it is their right to protest. Why are you stopping them? Why are you using water cannons and tear-gassing them? When we are not stopping them and Delhi is not stopping them, who are you to stop them? I don't like this dishonest behaviour. He can call me 10 times now, I won't pick up his call.
Punjab CM Amarinder Singh earlier said he would not speak to Khattar until he seeks an apology for “inflicting brutality” on farmers
