After a 3-hour long 'chakka jam' ended with no major impact in the country, Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) spokesperson Darshan Pal Singh on Saturday said that Rakesh Tikait should have consulted with them before making the statement that violence might have erupted in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand since both these states including Delhi were excluded from 'chakka jam' call."

"He personally felt that violence might occur in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. I feel he should have made the statement after speaking with us. The statement was made in haste," Farmer leader Darshan Pal on Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) spokesperson Rakesh Tikait's statement.

Earlier, Rakesh Tikait made a statement saying, "We have evidence that few people would have attempted to spread violence at these places. So we have decided to not block roads in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand."
