The protests in the US came just a day after agitating farmers stormed Delhi's Red Fort and unleashed violence in the city during a tractor rally on Republic Day. Violating the routes permitted to take out the rally in the national capital, the farmers began to break police barricades, vandalize public property, engaged in violent clashes with the cops that led to mass injuries. At least 83 police personnel were injured in the violence.
Even as violence broke out, farm union leader Rakesh Tikait denied reports of violence and claimed that the march was peaceful. He said that the Centre should repeal the farm laws or farmers would continue to protest.
