Sharing the 53-second video clip, which has now gone viral, Samajwadi Party chief and former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said it shows the “audacity” of the “double engine” of the BJP and the sand mafia. The “double engine” reference is an apparent dig at the BJP’s poll slogan through which it urges voters to elect BJP both at the centre and their states for rapid development.

The security personnel posted at the barricading are seen trying to stop the tractors but the speed of the tractor is so high that they have to retreat to keep themselves safe.

As per the latest information available, the tractors were returning from Gwalior toward Agra when they were they were supposed to stop at the toll plaza. However, in just a matter of 50 seconds, all 13 illegal sand-laden vehicles broke the barricades.

Notably, illegal sand mining has been rising in Chambal over time now and has started to become a matter of concern. Illegal mining is reportedly being carried out in the areas near the Rajasthan-Uttar Pradesh border.
