Jhajjar/Sonepat, November 24

Farmers from Punjab have started returning to Tikri and Singhu borders to mark the anniversary of their protest on November 26. Hundreds of them, including women, arrived on Wednesday, some carrying sweets to express happiness over the repeal of the contentious farm laws.

Karnail Singh, who came from Sangrur, was hopeful that the PM would meet their other demands too. “We have set up three committees to make arrangement for food,” said Pargat Singh, general secretary, BKU (Rajewal). He said since most farmers had sown wheat by now, they expected a large gathering by November 26. Another BKU leader Purushottam Singh Gill said a majority of protesters who had arrived here were from Moga, Bathinda, Faridkot, Sangrur and Amritsar etc.
