Farmers’ tractor march today, massive jams likely at Delhi-Noida border

Farmers are set to hold a tractor rally along the Yamuna Expressway in Uttar Pradesh’s Gautam Buddh Nagar district and massive jams are expected at the Delhi-Noida border, inconveniencing hundreds of commuters.

Farmers are planning to take out the tractor march along the Yamuna Expressway, Luharli Toll Plaza and Mahamaya Flyover and police have imposed traffic diversions at these places.

The Delhi-Noida border will be sealed with barricades and police will conduct checking of vehicles entering Delhi or Noida. People have been advised not to use the Yamuna Expressway and to use alternative routes or the metro to avoid inconvenience.

The development comes even as farmers have paused their march to the national capital till February 29 after a decision is made and are staying put at the Khanauri and Shambhu points on the Punjab-Haryana border.


  • Farmer leader Baldev Singh Sirsa said his colleague Pritpal Singh was doing ‘langar seva’ (community service) at Khanauri on the Punjab-Haryana border when he was allegedly dragged by the policemen from his tractor trolley and thrashed.”He was dragged from his tractor trolley, thrashed and later admitted to a hospital in Rohtak. But, we got him shifted to PGIMER at Chandigarh,” he was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
  • According to farmer leader Sarwan Singh Pandher, Pritpal Singh has suffered multiple injuries. “We strongly condemn the police action,” he said.He also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should come forward and accept the demands of the protesting farmers so that the deadlock in talks between the government and farmer leaders is broken.”The Prime Minister should also take action against policemen who indulge in such ‘barbaric acts’,” he asserted.
  • Former Punjab Chief Minister and senior BJP leader Captain Amarinder Singh condemned the “barbaric act of violence” against Pritpal Singh.He urged Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar to take strict action against the policemen responsible for assaulting the farmer.
