Tractor rally violence: Sunny Deol dissociates himself from Deep Sidhu again
New Delhi/UNI: Punjab's Gurdaspur BJP MP Sunny Deol on Tuesday once again clarified that he has no connection with actor-turned-activist Deep Sidhu.
"Today, I am very sad to see what happened at the Red Fort, I have already made it clear on Twitter, on December 6, that me or my family has no connection with Deep Sidhu", Deol tweeted.
आज लाल क़िले पर जो हुआ उसे देख कर मन बहुत दुखी हुआ है, मैं पहले भी, 6 December को ,Twitter के माध्यम से यह साफ कर चुका हूँ कि मेरा या मेरे परिवार का दीप सिद्धू के साथ कोई संबंध नही है।— Sunny Deol (@iamsunnydeol) January 26, 2021
According to sources, Deep Sidhu is being accused of allegedly inciting the farmers to not follow the new agreed route for the tractor rally today.
Violent clashes erupted on Tuesday when a section of farmers decided to enter Delhi to register their protest against the three contentious farm laws, much ahead of the time they were granted permission by the Delhi police.
Dramatic scenes of violent clashes were witnessed when the farmers reached the ITO area of Central Delhi.
Braving the tear gas, lathicharge by police and breaking barricades, the protesters stormed into the heart of the national capital Delhi and captured the Red Fort as police seemed going outnumbered.
While the farmers claimed the deceased was hit by a bullet, police said he had died after his tractor overturned.
Footage of the incident showed the casualty resulted as the victim's tractor rammed into yellow Delhi Police barricades and oveturned.
In some visuals, the dividers on the streets of Delhi were seen vandalised, allegedly by the farmers.
The farmers reportedly entered into Delhi through the routes which have not been allotted for the protesters.
The situation rapidly went out of control as farmers drove their tractors into the iconic Red Fort.
Protesting farmers climbed the ramparts and tried to put up yellow flags of Sikh religious significance.
It took hours for the police to remove the protesters from the 400-year-old Mughal-built monument.
