Sangrur/Bathinda, Nov 25

Unwilling to accept only repeal of central farm laws, thousands of farmers from various districts of the state left for Delhi borders on Thursday to participate in the event to mark the first anniversary of the protest.

Many have made preparations as they had done last year. “We have collected ration and other essential commodities from our village as we had done last year before the start of the agitation. This time, we are relieved that at least the Centre has accepted our demand for repeal of black laws. But our fight will continue for other demands,” said Surjit Kaur, an elderly at the Ladda toll plaza.

As per the estimates of the BKU Ugrahan, on Thursday, around 900 buses, 1,055 mini-buses, 290 trucks and hundreds of tractor-trailers of their members left for New Delhi through Khanauri and Dabwali borders. — TNS
