Sources privy to the arrangement said beginning from Moga, the tractor rally would wind its way through the rural areas of Ludhiana, Patiala and Sangrur before entering Haryana. Till late this evening, the route of the tractor with night halts en route were being finalised. The party leadership wants to show its solidarity with the farming community.
