Karnal, December 26

A group of 12 persons, including farmers and members of their families, reached Karnal on Saturday after walking more than 200 km from Anandpur Sahib. They had started their journey seven days ago.

Their destination is the Singhu border, about 100 km from here. They said they wanted to be part of the massive agitation launched by farmers against the new farm laws. "We had started on December 20 from Anandpur Sahib. The single-point agenda is to get the three laws repealed. These laws will ruin small and marginal farmers," said Dilbag Singh, a farmer who is leading the group.

Sunita, who is part of the group, said: "Thousands of our brothers, sisters, elders and children are protesting across the country. We will protest in support of our brethren."

Ajit Pal Singh, another farmer, criticised the Centre for ignoring the demand of farmers. He added it would take them seven more days to reach Singhu. In high spirits, they march on.
