New Delhi: Two days ahead of the tractor rally proposed by the agitating farmers on Republic Day, the Delhi Police on Sunday (January 24, 2021) said that over 300 Twitter handles have been generated from Pakistan to disrupt the rally.
“Over 300 Twitter handles have been generated from Pakistan during January 13 to 18 to disrupt the tractor rally by farmers only by misleading people. There are inputs about the same from different agencies too. It will be a challenging task for us but the rally will be conducted amid tight security after the Republic Day parade is over,” PTI quoted Deependra Pathak, Special Commissioner of Police (Intelligence) as saying.
Pathak who was detailing the plan for the tractor parade also said that the rally on Republic Day will be conducted amid tight security.
“We will have the tractor rally on January 26 and there will be no disturbance of the Republic Day celebration and security arrangements,” Pathak said.
“As the farmers wanted to do a tractor rally on January 26, we have come to a conclusion that the rally will be conducted after the timing of the Republic Day Celebration ends. We have given them around 170 kilometres of distance in three routes,” he said.
“For the Delhi Police, it will be a challenging task. We have spoken to Haryana and Uttar Pradesh Police officers about how it will be conducted in a convenient way. The rally will be started after the time period of the Republic Day Celebration has ended,” Pathak added.
The barricades and other security arrangements will be removed and the farmers will enter Delhi and later, they will return to their destinations after covering a ‘respectable’ distance.
