President Ram Nath Kovind on January 29 condemned the violence that took place during the January 26 tractor rally. He asserted that with the new three agricultural reforms, the government has provided new facilities and rights to farmers.

“The insult to the Tricolour on Republic Day is very unfortunate. The Constitution that provides us freedom of expression is the same Constitution that teaches us that law and rules have to be followed seriously,” the President said addressing the members at the Budget session of the Parliament that began on January 29. The Budget will be presented in the Parliament on February 1.

The national capital witnessed unprecedented scenes of chaos and violence during the tractor march by farmers on Republic Day as hundreds of protesters broke away from a rally on the city outskirts and stormed Red Fort with others breaching barricades and clashing with police in other parts of the capital. The protesters hoisted a religious flag just next to the national flag at the Red Fort during the protests.
