Singhu, Tikri Borders Packed; Leaders Laud Farmers as Protests Complete 1 Year
Catch all the live updates on the programme to mark one year of the farmers' protests here.
Farmers are marking the one-year anniversary of their successful protest against the Centre's contentious farm laws on Friday, 26 November, with massive gatherings in Delhi, and other places.
A blood donation camp has been set up at Singhu border and morning prayers were held on Friday as the protest site marks one year since the agitation began.
Despite the repeal of the laws announced by PM Modi last week, farmers have announced that the protest will continue as several of their other demands have not been fulfilled yet. Consequently, they will hold several events and protests across the country on Friday.
On Thursday, many tractors, jeeps, and cars were seen leaving Punjab and heading to Singhu, Tikri, and Ghazipur borders, the sites of the year-long protest in and around the national capital.
In states which are far away from Delhi, the anniversary will be marked with rallies, dharnas and other programmes

'26 November Marks Great Moment of People's Struggle in History': SKM
"On November 26th 2021, the farm movement completed one year of its historic struggle with lakhs of farmers, joined by workers, youths, women and common citizens in nationwide programs. The day will forever be remembered as one of the greatest moments of a people’s struggle in history. This day marked twelve long months of the farmers struggle, with numerous victories which seemed unlikely, and even impossible, with a will and determination to continue to fight for the unfulfilled demands of the farmers," the Samyukta Kisan Morcha, the umbrella body of farmers' unions that is spearheading the protests, said in a statement.
"The farm movement stands as a testimony to the will of the common people to fight against an unrelenting government, and for a long time, will be remembered as an example of peaceful satyagraha inspired by Mahatma Gandhi and the Indian freedom movement," it added.
