"Is Amarinder Khalistani? What non-sense is this? Once they say Amarinder is heading it, once they say Khalistan is heading it. Tell them to make up their mind first," Singh told News 18.

Khattar had earlier said that the protesting farmers include Khalistanis.

He further said that he will not cooperate with Khattar unless the latter apologises to the farmers for using water cannons and force on them.

"When the government of India allowed them to proceed and none of the farmers violated any law, who is Khattar to stop them?" he added.
