The tractor march began at Chhatinashol in Gopiballavpur and culminated at Jamshola on the Odisha border, around 25 km away.

"Mamata Banerjee's fight to protect the rights of farmers is memorable. She went on a hunger strike for the farmers of Singur. So to the farmers of the country, she is the mother," Soren said, addressing a public meeting at the Gopiballavpur Jatra Maidan after the march.

"Farmers also know that Mamata Banerjee will never let anyone take away their rights," she added.
