The national capital witnessed violence during the January 26 tractor rally organised by protesting farmer unions to highlight their demand for repeal of the Centre’s three farm laws. Driving tractors, many protesters reached the Red Fort while some of them hoisted religious flags on its domes and the flagstaff at the ramparts, where the national flag is unfurled by the prime minister on Independence Day.
