Several rounds of talks between the government and protesting farmers have failed to resolve the impasse over the three farm laws. Farmers protesting against agricultural reforms breached barricades and clashed on Tuesday with police in the capital, who fired tear gas to restrain them, shortly after a convoy of tractors trundled through the Delhi’s outskirts. On 26th January, Republic day Farmers climb domes of Red Fort, hoist flags.

The 2020–2021 Indian farmers’ protest is an ongoing protest against the three farm acts which were passed by the Parliament of India in September 2020. Farmer unions and their representatives have demanded that the laws be repealed and will not accept anything short of it.

More than 20 tractors entered the Red Fort with nation flags this afternoon, hours after the farmers’ parade began.

In visuals emerging from ITO, one of the main intersections in Delhi near media offices and the police headquarters, policemen in riot gear appeared to be outnumbered. The policemen were seen running or hiding behind cars as farmers armed with sticks chased them with sticks and ramming their tractors into the buses parked by police.

Traders’ association says Connaught Place to remain closed following Delhi Police advisory.

 

A protester has reportedly died near Delhi’s ITO at the farmers’ Republic Day tractor rally on Tuesday, 26 January. Protesting farmers claimed that the farmer was killed after being shot at by the Delhi Police.

The incident took place near the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg where a toppled tractor was also seen. It is being reported that the farmer was on the tractor that met with an accident.
