The ministry said it was a “routine communication” on law and order issues.

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Saturday clarified that its March letter to Punjab on exploitation of farm labour was not connected to the ongoing farmers’ protests, and that media reports suggesting “grave charges” by the ministry against farmers had put the letter in “unrelated context”.

The MHA said in a statement: “A section of the media has erroneously reported that this Ministry has written to Punjab Government allegedly levelling grave charges against farmers of the state. These news reports are misleading and present a distorted and highly editorialized opinion of a simple observation about a socioeconomic problem emerging from four sensitive border districts of Punjab over a period of two years, which has been brought to the attention of this Ministry by the concerned CAPF.”
