A day after the tractor parade turned 'violent' in the national capital, the mood at the farmers' camp was one of disappointment even as the numbers of those at the protest site went down considerably.

The number of protesters reduced significantly compared to those present here over the last two days since they had come to participate in the parade.

Meanwhile, at Singhu, farmers condemned the 'shameful' act by the 'mob' and 'blamed' the Union Government's intelligence failure.

They were hopeful that the incident would not have any adverse impact on their protest. "We did not come to unfurl a flag at Red Fort, but to get the three laws repealed. I condemn the incident. It is a conspiracy of the government to defame the peaceful protest. The area near the Red Fort always remains under high security during Republic Day and Independence Day. How did the government let the unfortunate incident happen?" said Trilochan Singh Sandu of Moga.

Jugraj Singh of Ferozepur district said the incident should not have happened, yet the protest would continue with the same spirit. He blamed intelligence failure for the 'unfortunate' incident.
