After the Supreme Court refused to entertain the Delhi Police plea seeking directions to stop the tractor rally by farmers on the Republic Day, the protesters at the Singhu border today reiterated that the tractor parade would be peaceful and that thousands of tractors from Punjab would start for the Delhi borders on January 23 and 24.
Yogendra Yadav, convener, Jai Kisan Andolan, said: “The Sanyukt Kisan Morcha’s main objective is to hold the tractor parade peacefully.”
Meanwhile, farmers have started decorating their tractors, while some have pasted posters which describe the contribution of farmers to the nation’s development.
Moga farmers Simarjeet Singh and Gurpeet Singh, who reached the Sonepat railway station on Tuesday night, said they were returning home and would come back on January 24 along with the tractor rally.
Simarjeet said, “People in Punjab are busy preparing for the parade. About 25 tractors from each village will reach Delhi borders.”
