"Administration had spoken to their (protesting farmers) people yesterday. They had agreed to hold a symbolic protest but no agitation. Trusting them, the administration had made all preparations. Over 5,000 people were present at the event today. But some youth failed to keep their promise," Khattar said. "Our nation has a strong democracy where everyone has freedom of expression. We never stopped statements of these alleged farmers and leaders," he added.

Khattar's "Kisan Mahapanchayat" was cancelled after agitating farmers vandalised the venue at Kaimla village in Karnal. Protesting farmers also damaged stage and helipad where the Chief Minister was scheduled to land. "It is not right to obstruct anyone who wants to speak. I don't think people will tolerate violation of provisions given by Dr BR Ambedkar," Khattar said.

Haryana CM Reacts:

"If I have to hold someone responsible for this, then a video of Gurnam Singh Chaduni has been circulating since the day before yesterday wherein he had tried to instigate people. They are getting exposed. I think Congress and Communist parties have a major role behind these agitations," the Chief Minister asserted.
