Notices Issued To 220 Tractor Owners In Uttar Pradesh

Lucknow: Notices were issued to around 220 tractor owners in various districts by the Uttar Pradesh Police.


Leader of Opposition in the Uttar Pradesh assembly, Ram Govind Chaudhary has said that the aim was to threaten the farmers and keep them away from the ongoing protest against farm laws.

However, according to police, the notices have no connection with the farmers’ protest against the Centre’s new agriculture laws.

“Notice have been served to 220 owners of tractors in the Sikandarpur police station area in Ballia. In the notice, it has been mentioned that the tractors were used on public roads for commercial work, and minors were driving them. As a result of this, there were road accidents. The tractors were also used in illegal mining,” Sikandarpur police station SHO, Bal Mukund Mishra was quoted as saying by news agency IANS.

Regional Transport Officer Rajeshwar Yadav although said he was not aware of the move when asked if the police can issue such a notice.

“The farmers have tractors, and they are going to the protest site by tractors. Police have issued the notices to hinder the farmers’ movement,” Ram Govind Chaudhary said.
