Fake: Old image from Jat agitation passed off as ongoing farmers’ protests
New Delhi, Dec 03: An image of a woman driving a tractor is being circulated on the social media.
It has been claimed that the contingent from Haryana, with a tractor driven by a woman is heading to the Tikri Border and participate in the ongoing farmers' protests.
