Farmer Leader VM Singh Also Separated From the Movement
Farmer leader VM Singh has also withdrawn from the movement and made several allegations against Rakesh Tikait and other farmer leaders. VM Singh said that strict action should be taken against those who provoked them. VM Singh said that it is also the government’s fault when someone is leaving at 8 o’clock instead of 11 o’clock, what the government was doing. When the government knew that some organizations had talked about giving crores of rupees to the flag hoisting on the Red Fort, what was the government doing.
