Security personnel have been trying to convince the farmers to stick to the plan of holding the tractor parade after the conclusion of the Republic Day parade at Rajpath.
The protesting farmers have also announced a foot march to Parliament on February 1, when the annual Budget is presented, to press for their demands including a repeal of the three new agriculture laws.
The farmer unions, protesting for nearly two months against the three new Central farm laws, had said on Monday that their tractor parade would start only after the official Republic Day parade on Rajpath concluded.
