reader from Pakistan, told in the press conference. The same type of information has been received from various agencies in this regard. This will be a challenging task for us. However, after the Republic Day parade ends, the tractor parade will be taken out amidst tight security.
It is noteworthy that thousands of farmers are protesting against the new agricultural laws on the borders of Delhi, most of which are from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh. Farmers' organizations allege that the new agricultural laws will end the system of mandi and MSP procurement and farmers will be dependent on the mercy of big corporate houses.
Earlier, the police had requested the leaders of farmers organizations to take out the tractor parade outside the national capital but they were adamant to parade on the outer ring road of Delhi. In the fourth round of talks between the police and the farmers, the parade was agreed between the two sides.
