They cannot live without agitating… We will have to identify them, (those) who give an ideological slant, mislead.”

A day after Modi’s speech, leaders of farmers’ unions condemned the “insult of farmers by the Prime Minister by calling them andolan-jivi (survivors on protests)”.

Darshan Pal, president of Krantikari Kisan Union acknowledged on behalf of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha: “No doubt Punjab’s contribution needs to be acknowledged but this andolan is of all farmers of this country…SKM condemns the PM insulting farmers by calling them andolan-jivi. Farmers would like to remind the PM that it is andolans that have liberated India from colonial rulers and that is why we are proud to be andolan-jivi…
