Farmers tractor protest overshadows military parade
Thousands of farmers in tractor convoys burst through police barricades Tuesday to take their protest against agriculture reform to the heart of India's capital, just as the nation marked Republic Day with a giant military parade. Police had earlier sealed most entrances to the city with containers and trucks, but had to use tear gas and batons as the farmers broke through. Photo AP/PTI
Locals stood on both sides of the roads at various locations showering flower petals on the farmers amid drum beats.
