Tens of thousands of farmers broke barriers to storm the national capital on Tuesday, their tractor parade to highlight their demands dissolving into unprecedented scenes of anarchy as they fought with police, overturned vehicles and delivered a national insult - hoisting a religious flag from the ramparts of the Red Fort, a privilege reserved for India’s tricolour.
