Punjab and Haryana on high alert after tractor rally turns violent in Delhi

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has put the state on high alert—a development that comes hours after clashes broke out between farmer protesters and the Delhi Police during a tractor rally in the national capital.


The chief minister, who also condemned the violence and asked protesters to leave Delhi and return to their protest site, has ordered Director General of Police Dinkar Gupta to ensure law and order in the state remains undisturbed at any cost, a press release said on Tuesday.

Terming the violence during Tuesday’s tractor rally in the national capital as unacceptable, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar ordered high alert in the state.

He directed Director General of Police Manoj Yadav to ensure that law and order in the state is not disturbed at any cost.

Khattar took this decision after reviewing the situation at a high-level meeting with state’s top functionaries here.

Violence broke out in several places in the national capital as farmers defied a preset route for the rally and clashed with police at several places, including ITO, Nangloi Chowk and Murbaka Chowk.
