On Tuesday, Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij had said that "It (farmers' stir) can't be called an agitation. People don't bring swords, use lathis and block the passage of people in an agitation. They sit on dharna and hunger strikes. This can't be called a protest. You may call it 'ghadar' (mutiny)."

Vij had tweeted, "Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh ji telling farmers to do whatever they want in Haryana or Delhi and don't do it in Punjab is a very irresponsible statement. This proves that Amarinder Singh has done the work of instigating the farmers."
