The tractor parade will start from the Ghazipur, Singhu and Tikri border points of Delhi, but the final details of routes are yet to be released, said Kohar, a senior member of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), an umbrella body of the agitating unions. A farmer leader told PTI that “around 100,000 tractor-trolleys from across the country will participate” in what is now being termed as Kisan Gantantra Parade. A member of the SKM said the parade will cover over 100 km. There will 40 members, including doctors, security personnel and social media managers, in each of these rooms, he added. "Everyone has to return to the starting point after the parade," one of the leaders said, indicating the two-month-long protest won’t be over after the tractor rally. Routes of the rally will be decided by the police forces of Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Haryana and details will be released by the SKM after a final decision. Meanwhile, the All India Kisan Sabha's (AIKS) Maharashtra unit said some 15,000 farmers had set out for Mumbai from Nashik on Saturday. After a near 170-km march, part of which was done on foot by many farmers, they started converging at Azad Maidan, the protest venue in south Mumbai.
