On Sunday, Delhi Police said 308 Twitter handles had been created to stir confusion over the proposed tractor rally by farmers protesting on Republic Day. Delhi Police Intelligence Special CP Dependra Pathak said, “Through intelligence and various other agencies, we are constantly receiving input regarding the threat of disturbing the tractor rally. 308 Twitter holders have been created from Pakistan to create confusion.
Giving details of these Twitter handles, the special commissioner said that all these handles were produced in Pakistan from January 13 to January 18.
The proposed Republic Day tractor march, which received official clearance from Delhi Police on Sunday, has been the subject of controversy over the past few days, as the Center already reported ‘Khalistani leak’ in protests and prompted the Supreme Court. making the final call to allow the tractor to walk. Initially, Delhi Police did not allow farmers to enter the Capital City. Instead, it offered an alternative route along the Kundli border. However, after several rounds of discussion between farmer representatives and Delhi Police officials, it was now accepted that farmers would be allowed to enter the Capital City under certain terms and conditions.
It is now decided that the tractor rally will enter Delhi through the borders of Tiri, Singhu and Ghazipur. Police said the march from Singhu would cross the Kanjhawala, Bawana, Auchandi border, KMP Highway and return to Singhu.
Protesting farmers have been planning this tractor march for a long time, and in the past few days several tractors from Punjab joined the protest grounds for the Republic Day parade, where they planned to display tractors from different states, as in the Republic Day parade. The farmers’ union leaders pledged the march to be peaceful, and the Delhi Police reassured them that the tractors would return to the protest sites after the march before moving further into the capital.
While several Union ministers in the past claimed that farmers were provoked from outside, earlier this month the Central Supreme Court said protests were informed about the Khalistani infiltration. He also mentioned the banned organization ‘Sikhs for Justice’ as part of the ongoing protest.
This is the first time that Delhi Police have officially spoken of external links, especially Twitter users who have roots in Pakistan and are trying to create cuts.
