New Delhi, Feb 2:

Shiv Sena leaders including party MPs Arvind Sawant and Sanjay Raut called on Bharatiya Kisan Union leader Rakesh Tikait at Ghazipur (Delhi-Uttar Pradesh) border and expressed solidarity with agitating farmers on Tuesday.
“We spoke to Tikait sahib, gave our message and expressed solidarity. Govt should speak to farmers in a proper way. Ego would not help run the country”, Raut told media persons at  Ghazipur border.
“The people will not pardon us if we do not meet the agitating farmers, when we are in Delhi. We whole heartedly support the farmers and demand that the centre comes out with an amicable solution to resolve the impasse. BJP is repeatedly raising the issue of farmers unfurling a flag from the ramparts of Red Fort. However the farmers are agitating for their own cause and if they are satisfied, we all will be satisfied. As such it is wrong to label farmers as anti-nationals” he said.   
He said that instead of creating road blocks to prevent farmers from entering Delhi, the Union Government should have erected barriers along the Indo-China border to prevent infiltration.
In the meanwhile a video footage of tractor rally on Republic Day being circulated on social media shows that the protesters hoisted a flag from an empty pole mast. They neither took down the Indian flag nor replaced it with a flag of “Khalistan”. There are several videos that confirm the same. In the video below, the tricolour can be seen atop Lahore gate (entrance to the Red Fort) as the protestor climbs the empty flag post.
