Two Agriculture Department officials — Chief Agriculture Officer Dr Balwinder Singh and Plant Protection Officer Dr Jaswinder Singh Brar — had especially modified the tractor used in the Congress rally today. The 'Hindustan Super 80' tractor that Rahul Gandhi rode belonged to progressive farmer Gurmeet Singh of Cheeda village.

Under the supervision of the two scientists, a local workshop modified the seats for a comfortable ride. "Cushioned seats with safety rods in front were installed. The foot rests were also modified for comfortable seating," said Dr Brar.

Gurmeet said he had purchased the tractor in 1980 and kept it in running condition. "I was happy to learn that Rahul and the CM were to use my tractor," he said.

Another 2019 Mahindra tractor, belonging to Sharanjit Singh, a farmer of Rode village, was modified by the officials. However, Rahul chose the Hindustan Super 80 for the rally. Both farmers said they would foot the bill incurred on the modifications.
