Explain that under the guise of the tractor parade, the farmers have started creating an uproar in Delhi. The Delhi Police had allowed the tractor parade to take place after the Republic Day celebrations were completed as per the stipulated conditions, but different groups of farmers started trying to enter Delhi from Tuesday morning. The police tried their best to stop and convince them on the Singhu, Tikri, and Ghazipur borders, but they did not agree. The skirmishers entered into Delhi, clashing with police personnel. A police personnel was beaten up at many places.
Mukarba Chowk was the worst hit. Tear guns were looted here. Police crane was captured and the buses and dumpers used as barricades were removed from the streets.
