New Delhi, January 19
Farmers on Tuesday made it clear to Delhi Police that they would hold a peaceful tractor rally on January 26 inside Delhi and that there is no scope of compromise on the issue.
Union leader Balbir Singh Rajewal said they are preparing for a peaceful march of tractors and tableux regarding the lifestyle of farmers in the march on the outer Ring Road and that there would be no change in the route plan.
The plan that they had prepared is final, he said.
Top officials of Delhi and Haryana are believed to have told farmer leaders to choose an alternative route, citing the traffic and other constraints of the outer Ring Road where the farmers have planned their march.
Yogendra Yadav said the day would go down in the history of the movement as an example of a peaceful protest and the strength and resolve of farmers.
“We are clear on three points: one, the parade will be on the planned route and there is no scope for a change in that; two, it will be inside Delhi; and three, it will be completely peaceful,” Yadav said.
