New Delhi – The Farmer’s tractor parade is a matter of law and order and has to be decided by the Police. “Police is the first authority to decide who should be allowed to enter Delhi. The question of who should be allowed to enter the city [Delhi] and how many people can be allowed to enter are the matters to be decided by the Police,” the Supreme Court said, adding, “We cannot interfere.” The protesting farmers on the Delhi borders have threatened to hold a tractor rally on the 26th January, the Republic day. The farmers are firm about the rally and under no circumstance will they deter. This can hamper the Republic Day parade. The Central Government on behalf of the Delhi police had filed a petition in the Apex Court seeking an order against the protesting farmers’ tractor march or any other kind of protest. The Supreme Court in a response to the petition had given this decision. Next hearing is on 20th January.

The Court said that it will not tell the Police what to do. They will hear it out on the 20th  January. The court also asked that does it have to explain to the Police, about what rights they have.
