Farmer leaders, protesting against the three farm laws, have postponed their foot march to Parliament on 1 February in wake of the violence in the national capital during the tractor parade on Republic Day.

“On Martyrs’ Day, we’ll hold public rallies across India on behalf of the farmers’ agitation. We will also keep a one-day fast. Our March to the Parliament on February 1 stands postponed for now due to this (Tuesday’s violence),” Balbir S Rajewal of Bhartiya Kisan Union told News18.

As per reports, a total of 153 police personnel were injured, with two of them in the intensive care unit (ICU), after rioting farmers broke barriers to storm the national capital on Tuesday.

Clashes broke out at multiple places, leading to violence in well-known landmarks of Delhi and its suburbs.

A protester also died after his tractor overturned near ITO, one of the major flashpoints of trouble.

In a statement, the police said protesting farmers violated the conditions agreed on for their tractor parade.
