In pics; Farmers tractor rally against farm laws

New Delhi: A day ahead of the next round of talks with the Union government, thousands of farmers protesting on the Delhi borders organised a ‘tractor march’ on Thursday, describing the event as a “rehearsal” for a similar roadshow proposed on January 26 to oppose the three new central farm laws.

The march comprising both men and women sitting on hundreds of tractors was flagged off from the Singhu and Tikri entry points on the Delhi-Haryana borders and Ghazipur on the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border.

The sloganeering farmers drove their tractors towards Eastern and Western Peripheral Expressways, where they plan to converge later in the day.

The tractors sported the tricolour and farmer union flags, apart from banners proclaiming their opposition to the farm laws even as policemen and bystanders looked on with curiosity.

The farmers will return to the protest spots on the Delhi borders, from where they had started in the morning.
