The Indian diaspora in Canada held a demonstration in Vancouver condemning the violence that happened during the farmers’ tractor rally that had jolted the National capital on Republic day. 

Indians carried out 'Tiranga Yatra' on the streets of Vancouver and rallied with the tricolour from Strawberry Hill in Surrey to the Consulate General of India, showcasing the bilateral relations between India and Canada.

The Indian National flag was seen on top of cars and the demonstrators shouted slogans like 'Vande Mataram' and 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai'.


The rally was organised in response to the seizure of Red Fort in New Delhi during the farmer's tractor march. The demonstrators said they were disheartened to see Tricolour’s disrespect during the rally which turned violent and therefore decided to take out a Tiranga rally in the Canadian city. The demonstrators said they stand with the government as well as the farmers and hoped that the issues are resolved the earliest. 

 

Republic Day violence.

Farmers protesting against the three farm laws proposed for a tractor rally on India’s 72nd Republic Day which turned violent as protesters barged into Red Fort in New Delhi, breaking through barricades, clashing with police at various places and causing injuries to hundreds of them. Several protesters deviated from the agreed routes and created chaotic scenes for hours, pelted stones at the cops and damaged public property. 

Multiple FIRs were lodged including against farmer leaders. 

Last week, the government told Parliament that "aggressive" farmers resorted to violence and used "criminal force" against public servants during their R-Day tractor march, adding that the Delhi Police was left with no option but to stern action.
