JAIPUR: Insensitive policies of the Modi government are to blame for the protesting farmer unions' decision to take out a tractor parade on Republic Day, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Monday.

Farmer unions opposing the three contentious farm laws are going to take out a tractor parade on Tuesday.

The unions claimed that around two lakh tractors are expected to participate in the parade which will move into the national capital from three border points --- Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur (UP Gate).

"The insensitive policies of the Modi government have created an unprecedented atmosphere in the country where our farmers are forced to take out a tractor parade on Republic Day to protest against the new agricultural laws," Gehlot said in a tweet.

Earlier, state Congress president Govind Singh Dotasra said thousands of farmers from Rajasthan have left for Delhi with their tractor trolleys, and the party stands with them.
