Speaking on the violent incidences during farmers' tractor parade on Republic Day in national capital, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar on January 26 said nobody will support whatever happened today but the reason behind it cannot be ignored either, and Centre didn't fulfil its responsibility. He said, "Farmers from Punjab, Haryana, western Uttar Pradesh held protest in a disciplined manner but government didn't take them seriously. As restraint ended, the tractor march was taken out. Centre's responsibility was to keep law and order in control but they failed." "Nobody will support whatever happened today but the reason behind it cannot be ignored either. Those sitting calmly grew angry, the Centre didn't fulfil its responsibility," he added.

Final route for tractor march to be decided today: Farmer leader

Ahead of the farmers' tractor march, Joint Secretary of Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee, Sukhwinder Singh Sabhra on January 25 stated that in today's meeting with police, the final route for the rally will be decided. He said, "We feel that the kind of permission granted to us for tractor rally is not right. We wanted to go to the old Ring Road but we were given conditional permission and assigned the portion that comes largely under Haryana." "All we're saying is that we don't want to go there, we just want to go to Ring Road. We'll have a meeting with Police at 10 am today over this. It will then be decided where we will finally go. After the meeting, we'll decide the time and route of the rally," he added.
