“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. Govt should act maturely & take the right decision,” he added.

Building sticks and clubs and holding tricolor and Union flags, thousands of farmers intercepted tractors, clashed with police and entered the city from various points to lay siege to the Red Fort and wave the flag on Republic Day.

Farmers, mostly from Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, have been camping at several Delhi border points, including Tikri, Singhu and Ghazipur, since November 28, demanding a complete repeal of three farm laws and a legal guarantee on minimum support price for their crops.
