Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Friday welcomed the Centre's decision to allow the agitating farmers to enter Delhi, but slammed the ML Khattar government in Haryana for its continued use of "brute force" to stop farmers even after the Union Government's conciliatory move.

Though the Central Government had allowed the farmers to enter the national capital to exercise their democratic right to protest, the Haryana government was engaged in a confrontationist approach against the farmers moving towards Delhi, said the Chief Minister, condemning the Khattar government's actions.

"What's the need for such harsh measures? This barbarism needs to stop right now @mlkhattar ji," said the Chief Minister, flaying the vicious manner in which the Haryana Government was treating the innocent and peaceful farmers.

He expressed shock at the methods used by Haryana in its desperate bid to stop the farmers, including destruction of public property by digging up the national highway. "The farmers did not inflict even an iota of damage to any public property over the past three months of their protest, and here is a state government that is brazenly and shamelessly digging up roads made of public money," he quipped.

Captain Amarinder also reiterated his appeal to the Central Government to initiate immediate talks to address farmers' concerns on the farm laws and resolve the simmering issue. Having taken the first step towards finding a peaceful and amicable solution to the problem, the Centre should now move quickly towards holding further talks with the kisan unions to thrash out the problem triggered by the agricultural legislations which have threatened the lives and livelihoods of the farmers.
