The members and leaders of BKU Ugrahan were counting their men and machinery on Tuesday evening at the Tikri border and remained hopeful that all their men would return safely to the camp as they neither gave a call to move towards the Red Fort nor they supported any violence.

“From the start of protest, I and other leaders of our organisation have been trying our level best to maintain peace because we know that political parties are hatching conspiracies to derail our protest,” BKU Ugrahan chief Joginder Ugrahan told The Tribune.

“It’s a big fight against the Central government and could only be won with peace not by violence. None from our organisation went to the Red Fort today nor did we create any other law and order problem,” said Joginder Ugrahan.

He though condemned the police action against protesters in Delhi. “We strongly condemned police action against protesters in New Delhi. If anyone from our organisation has inadvertently entered Delhi, I have asked them to come back to our camp at Tikri because our peaceful protest will continue here. We will announce our next action in coming days” said Ugrahan.

BKU Ugrahan working president Jaswinder Soma Longowal said that as per their route they started their protest towards Najafgarh from Bahadurgarh but cops created problems for them.

“Despite facing problems from policemen, we completed our march and a majority of our men have reached back to our camp at the Tikri border while others are on their way back. Not a single member of our organisation went to the Red Fort as we had not given any call and undertook the march as per the pre-decided route,” said Longowal.
