Tractor rally: India farmers clash with police in massive protest

Farmers have fought through barricades and tear gas to enter Delhi on India's Republic Day. Tens of thousands of them are driving into the city on tractors to protest against new market-friendly reforms. In some places, farmers broke barricades and diverted from the route they had agreed with the police.m Tuesday's rally is the latest episode in a months-long protest, one of the longest farmers-led agitations India has ever seen. The government has offered to put the laws on hold, but farmers say they will settle for nothing short of a repeal.
