As the farmers’ movement completed a year, Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi on Friday said their non-violent struggle is a unique saga of valour, patience and determination not only for repealing the farm laws but also to uphold the ethos of democracy and human rights.

Channi said he salutes the indomitable spirit of farmers who have been sitting at Delhi's borders for a year.

The farmers have been camping at three border points of Delhi - Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur - for the last one year. The movement against three new farm laws of the Centre began with a ‘Dilli Chalo’ programme on November 26-27 last year.

The Centre recently announced its decision to repeal the three farm laws.

In a tweet, Channi hailed the farmers, saying, “Their non-violent struggle is a unique saga of valour, patience and determination not only for repealing the draconian laws but also to uphold the ethos of democracy and human rights.”

“I salute the indomitable spirit of our food growers who are sitting in Delhi from this day last year protesting against the black farm laws enacted by the Modi government,” he said.

Terming the Union Cabinet's approval of a bill repealing the farm laws on Wednesday as a mere "formality", farmer leaders had earlier said now they wanted the government to resolve their other pending demands, most importantly the legal guarantee for the minimum support price. PTI
