Bathinda, July 26
Eight months have passed since farmers shifted their protest against the three agricultural laws to Delhi borders, but the spirit continues to remain high. Farmers are firm in their resolve to return only after getting the laws repealed.
“We have settled here with a resolve to continue our fight till our demands are met,” says Manjit Kaur of Bathinda at Tikri border. While many are camping at Delhi borders since November last year, people from villages of Punjab keep visiting the protest sites on rotation to maintain a healthy strength there.
“In the past eight months, we have braved cold, rains and sultry hot weather, and made our makeshift homes with iron frames, bamboos and tarpaulin sheets. We all are committed to staying here until the farm laws are repealed,” stresses a Tikri border protester. — TNS
