The delegation, consisting of Gurnam Singh Charuni, spokesperson Rakesh Bains, and Ambala unit president Malkit Singh, went to meet Vij at his residence and raised the issue of suppressing criminal cases registered against farmers while they were sitting on dharna during their 2020–21 agitation against the three farm laws.

Charuni said after the meeting that the minister assured them that all the cases that were registered during their agitation would be quashed. Vij urged the department officials to complete the process at the earliest. He also assured that no action will be taken against the government employees who participated and supported the farmers during the agitation.

Therefore, the Bhartiya Kisan Union decided to call off their blockade on Thursday.

According to Charuni, an event will take place on Thursday at the grain market in Mohra to commemorate the birth anniversary of late farmer leader and social reformer Sir Chhotu Ram as well as the two-year anniversary of the agitation.
