Farmers protesting against the Centre’s new farm laws have received permission to hold a tractor rally on Republic Day. The Delhi Police, however, has issued a series of restrictions, saying permission was given only to show respect for the farmers’ demand. “Protesting farmers can enter Delhi but can’t disturb the Republic Day parade,” the Delhi Police said on Sunday evening, declaring that the tractor rally will begin after the day’s traditional big parade on Rajpath, which terminates at the iconic Red Fort close to noon. Barricades and other security arrangements will be removed and the farmers will enter the national capital. Later, they will return to their destinations after covering a respectable distance,” a senior police official said. Over two lakh tractors will be a part of the January 26 ‘Kisan Parade’ in Delhi, farm union leaders said. Over 2,500 volunteers will be deployed to facilitate the movement of these vehicles, they shared.
